General Council attends a Symposium at University of Antonianum

Returning to Alma Mater was a great experience after 23 years.....the same environment....very much Franciscan....simplicity in the campus....the edifice has undergone some changes....but not big ones....Today the Franciscan Institute of Spirituality organised a symposium on the theme: The Research of Truth in openness at communion.......
 The four Franciscan generals have decided to have one unique Franciscan University....since two years the process is on.....many friars are working towards its realisation.....very soon it is going to be materialised.....
 The General Council attended the symposium in order to encourage the friars working towards unification.....God has a plan for the Franciscan Order......The General Minister was in full attendance

 It was great to meet some of the professors who are still teaching....Prof. Cacciotti......great teacher....recognised me.....
 Prof. Theo Jansen....one of our Capuchins from Holland.....teacher of Franciscan spirituality.....Pio seems to be taking some classes from him....
 The speakers for the day.....Lluis Clavell, professor at the university of Holy Cross and Marco Bartoli, professor at Libera University Maria Ss. Assunta
 Rector of the college is explaining some aspects of spirituality....
 Not serious discussion but admiring the ambience of Antonianum......their appreciation has grown now.....
 What a great feeling of being a student......

 Time to introduce and welcome each other

 The Rector of the University is Sr. Melone SFA welcoming the participants....


 President of the Franciscan Institute Br. Luca Bianchi.....Capuchin....doing a great job....walking in the footsteps of Bishop Paulo Martinelli....
