The General Council Meeting began today

The General Council began its 22nd meeting this morning at 9am. Most of us were out in the provinces for chapters, visitation and seminars.It was wonderful to be back to the Curia. We miss a lot the Curia when we are absent. It is a joy to return and then the community is good and understanding.....they do express that they missed all of us......
 This morning we began the meeting invoking God and asking his His light and wisdom for two weeks of council meeting.....Br. Mark Schenk led us into prayer....
 The minutes of the past meeting were read and passed.....
 As usual the first part of the agenda is all cases, permission, dismissals and approvals...it takes a quite a long time......we did that today....
 This is Br. Kevin who is appointed as the Guardian of the Jerusalem fraternity....he was with us for two months learning Italian and he finishes tomorrow and day after tomorrow he returns to India. He was the Custos of Zimbabwe ....he goes to India to apply for his visa.....for Israel .......

 Br. Guardian came to the meeting in the afternoon to share his 6 months experience with the general council.....he appreciated his work and the collaboration.....we appreciated him for his fraternal animation of the fraternity......
