Towards a synthesis

General Conference 2013

The morning of 26 September began with prayer and a special mention of Brs Emili Turú and Joe Mc Kee on the anniversary of their election as Superior General and Vicar General, respectively.

The plenary session continued with the free expression of echos of the reflection of the previous day on the message of Br Philip Pinto, Superior General of the Christian Brothers. It was a very enriching time of sharing.

Then Br Óscar Martín, Provincial of Compostela, member of the organizing committee, underlined the importance of making a synthesis of the whole experience lived. For this, he proposed starting from the profile of the leader, the topic treated on Tuesday, and the message of Wednesday from Br Philip Pinto. Each one was asked, first, what he felt himself being called to and what resistance he was encountering, and second, at the level of Province or District, what proposals he saw as most applicable and also the possible obstacles. Then to analyse and evaluate other possible leadership roles at regional level, ending with the strong points and possible resistances. The personal reflection was followed by sharing in regional groups.

The afternoon was divided into two parts. In the first, Br Ernesto Sánchez, C.G. and part of the organizing committee, presented the most relevant aspects of the results of the on-line evaluation of the General Government. In the second, the participants responded to various questions raised in the evaluation, concluding with a time for some brief items of information on the part of some.

At the Eucharist, there was a further commemoration of the anniversary of the election of Brs Emili and Joe, with thanksgiving to God for the gift of their persons to the Institute.
