XXI General Chapter – Initial Consultation



Meeting of the community leaders of Cruz del Sur

01/08/2008: Argentina

The community leaders of the Province of Cruz del Sur met on Saturday, July 12th to prepare for the consultation at of the brothers in the communities in preparation for the XXI General Chapter.

Lead by Brother Rubén Seipel, coordinator of the process, twenty-three brothers from the different communities in Argentina and Uruguay met to begin this first phase of dealing with the Chapter tasks, in response to the call addressed to the brothers and Lay Marists.

With the help of the material supplied by the regional commission a presentation was done of the proposal by the Preparatory Commission. The steps to be followed in each community were studied and they also spoke about the collaboration that is hoped for from the laity. After a moment of reflection on the life of the communities, and mentioning some new aspects, they continued on to an explanation of the methodology, which is based especially on a series of meditations, and suggestions were given on how to reflect personal ideas through writing in the corresponding pages of the notebook. Later there was time for questions, clarifications, and doubts. Some asked for an extension of the time frame. But the time period needs to remain as is if we want to coordinate the following steps in a general way throughout the Institute. The final impression was that we had before us an invaluable opportunity to be central figures on this road toward new times.

Waiting for the arrival of the Pilgrim’s Guide, and gaining the commitment to communally support this call to collaboration, the meeting ended with Marial prayer.
