Charismatic families on their way



Religious institutes are invited to value the experiences of the laity

10/11/2016: Italy

An encounter on the “charismatic families on their way” gathered on Nov. 4 and 5 at the general house of the Brothers of the Christian Schools in Rome where around 200 lay people and religious of different charisms gathered.

Six people represented the Marist Institute: Gianluca and Rosa, de Giuliano; Brother Pietro Bettin, of Genova; Luiz da Rosa and Brothers Ángel Media and Spiridion Ndanga of the General house.

The Union of Superiors General promotes the encounter, celebrated each year. Its objective is to make the different charismatic families known; raise awareness in communion, formation and collaboration and act with greater incidence in evangelization according to their own charisms.

The encounter was animated through different dynamics: conferences, group dialogue, presentations of experiences, prayer…

One of the most important moments was the talk of Father Rino Cozza, of the Josefinos de Murialdo family. He stressed the need for the religious congregations, in relation to the laity, pass from attunement to reciprocity and affirm that the charism needs to be enlightened by the experience lived by the laity.
