Chronicle III: Calls and Proposals of the Provincial Councils

28/05/2012: Brazil - Photo gallery

Friday 25 May began with morning prayer on the world situation organized by the province of Rio Grande do Sul. 

Br Eugène Kabanguka C. G. then guided reflection in the new groups on what came to us from the previous day. Br Josep Maria Soteras placed before us the journey already travelled and the task to be performed on this day.

This was based on a contemplative vision: “journeying with Marcellin” and “putting ourselves in his shoes”.

Then there was sharing of what each one felt as a call, at the personal, Council, provincial and regional levels. Each group drew on drawing paper, in the form of a quadrant, the calls and possible proposals at the different levels.

Br Josep Soteras gave us an interesting reflection on the “quadrant” to elicit from us a proposal on what we should do in continuation. The morning ended with a contemplative survey of what had been written and spontaneous echos.

The Province of Cruz del Sur led us in a creative Marial prayer in the afternoon. The General Council carried in the Good Mother and went around delivering her to each group, so that each was touched by a message from Mary. After this, Br Josep Soteras animated and guided the afternoon’s work.

This consisted primarily in the Councils working to decide on 3 proposals at the Regional level, and if time was available, at the Provincial or Provincial Council level.

In the last part of the afternoon, each Provincial Council placed in common what had been done at Council or Province level.

Then, one from each Council presented the 3 proposals for the Region (Brasil, Cono Sur, or both), arranging them according to similar themes.

Each group then reflected on them. The proposals were then passed on to each provincial, who would subsequently determine, with the General Council and the liaison Councillors (Josep Soteras and Eugène Kabanguka) the final definition of the proposals and their putting into practice.
