makes us aware of the needs of the whole Body
and more ready to serve wherever we are sent.
in the life and mission of the Society;
in the joy of being called and sent forth
to love as Jesus has loved us."
RSCJ Constitutions # 40
Guided by Carlos Palacio SJ, we had a day of presentation of the reality and the challenges of religious life in this post-modern world, where we are called to deepen our charism, our spirituality, and our mission. To grasp the need for reconfiguration of congregations is a very concrete reality for our life, wherein we are called to a conversion and a letting go of all that might be a "crowning moment" so that we can be immersed in the Gospel of Jesus who reveals to us his GOD: in whom the greatest and most real are his humanity and his littleness.
These were days of prayer, of a lot of listening and transparency among all, of evaluation and a sense of being one Body with the whole Society, touching deeply the hard reality that people are living.
