Today the Chapter members celebrated the Eucharist with Fr. Jean-Pierre Rwamisare, MIC, from Rwanda as the main celebrant. In his homily, he spoke of the great mercy of God, who wants to give us even more than what we desire or expect, but we experience this only when we are completely sincere before Him.
In the course of the sessions, the members completed their work on those proposals given for the Chapter that had received a positive opinion of the appropriate Committee. Then, at the invitation of the Superior General, the members shared their experience of the Chapter itself. In a particular way, everybody highlighted their experience of fraternal bonds, mutual respect and openness, which they shared during the Chapter – both during the sessions as well as the time in the chapel or at meals.
Tomorrow, the end of the Chapter is foreseen, and on Friday, the Chapter members will go to the Vatican for an audience with Pope Francis.
Fr. Piotr Kieniewicz, MIC
Secretary of the General Chapter
