The cycle of meetings at the Curia is in fast-track mode. During the week of 6-10 November, while some fifteen Provincials appointed in recent months were experiencing their second week of initiation into their relationship with Rome, the six Delegates for Formation, one from each Conference, met with Father General’s Assistant for Formation, Fr Mark Ravizza.
At the beginning of the meeting, Father General had the opportunity to express his hopes and desires that the Society, everywhere, could help its youngest members to grow. There are many dimensions to take into account: cultural sensitivities, the balance between periods of formation in one’s own environment and those abroad, logistical and administrative issues too.
We asked the Delegate for Formation in Asia-Pacific, Fr Riyo Mursanto, to share his thoughts on this week at the General Curia.
