Assembly of brothers from Italy

17/11/2005: Italy - Photo gallery

On Sunday the 30th October, continuing until the feast of All Saints, the brothers from the zone of Italy were invited by the Provincial to participate in an assembly, an invitation that was responded to generously. On the evening of the 29th October forty-two brothers were present for this appointment.
The work started on the 30th with words of greeting from Manuel. In thanking all for having supported this convocation, he recalled that the path to be travelled can be difficult, and sometimes even long, but we need to walk on the new roads that the Church and the Congregation indicate to us today. Uniting the new feelings, cultures and traditions of the former Provinces demands time, patience and love, because the most important thing is to work for the Kingdom of God. He finished by inviting us to dream and by saying once more that the Province of Mediterránea will be built by all of us together.
What brought about the convocation of this Assembly? For the brothers of the zone of Italy, more than a requirement, it was a matter of something urgent for us to give time to reflection and to sharing so that inescapable decisions could be made during the next few years. In preparing the meeting, we took account of a fundamental objective: to have an open mind to give thanks for the past and to have the will to construct the present and the future with hope.

In summary, the Provincial Assembly was an occasion given to all to encourage exchanges, to arouse interest in order to examine important problems and to suggest possible lines of action to help the Provincial Council to make its decisions.
The work was done in a rather intense fashion for two days. The first day was dedicated to the presentation and analysis of aspects relative to communities and to works, while the second day was dedicated entirely to fraternal dialogue.
It is urgent that choices be made! But above all, as Manuel reminded us, we need to change our heart and allow the Lord to act in our lives.
