As the canonical part of the Congregation begins, further discussion of key themes chosen by Fr. General will take place. In some weeks, Fr. General will publish the definitive version of his text based on this intense process of discernment in common. De Statu Societatis, revised after the Congregation of Procurators, will be shared with the whole Society as a renewed call to go forward on its journey of conversion.
“We need to ask ourselves, again and again, where the Spirit is leading us and what the Trinity wants us to do. Only through prayer and deep sharing together, sometimes at the foot of the Cross, can we find the answer to this question” said Fr Sosa. “The Venice experience was a key moment for the first companions and so too for us. When we rediscover that spirit of Venice - which is also the spirit of GC36 - we find our way forward. Discernment in common must be taken seriously. It can transform us.”
You are warmly invited to join the morning prayer of the Congregation which will be live streamed every day at 09.30 from May 16-21 inclusive (Central Europe time). The video of the prayer will be available afterwards on the special CP71 communications site where a variety of photos and other documents can be viewed and downloaded.
