2nd Day of the Second week of Council meeting


The morning session began with a beautiful prayer by Br. Raffaele......that set the tone for a marathon session on economy....the budget sessions in any government is the most expected and awaited feature...everyone would wait what is increased, what taxes and income taxes we have to pay more...what are the charges of goods that will go up....many more things....everyone wants a secure and pro-people budget from the government.....the concerned minister will do his best to prepare and present it to the government...


Even we have this practice in the General curia....without planning the economy we cannot think of doing anything. We know that the resources here are all drying up....many benefactors have stopped contributing because of the economic recession.....the General curia has many entities that are dependent on and receive subsidy for its maintenance.......the annual budget of the Curia is well prepared with the help of the external auditors......
Yesterday Br alejandro presented the annual Budget to the general council.....he took the whole day and its not over....another full day we need to discuss and pass the budget.....it is a well planning of the economy that assures smooth animation of the fraternity....we need to take care how we spend our monies....we need also to budget it well.....we got to be looking forward to the future and how we have to be calculative in organising our finances.....
Br. Alejandro has done a good job by preparing a good budget keeping in mind our capuchin charism and spirituality....We pray that the good and benevolent Lord be generous towards us through our benefactors and also inspire all of us to work and earn our own bread....we have many good young friars who are a big resource for the Order....
