Brother Emili Turú, Superior General, places the Document in the hands of the Brothers

17/12/2009: General House - Photo gallery

In a symbolic gesture performed in the community chapel of the General Administration, Brother Emili Turú presented to the Brothers present the Chapter Document freshly emerged from the printery. Having returned from Brasil, where he took part in the Provincial Chapter of « Brasil Centro-Norte », which installed the new Provincial, Br. Wellington Mousinho de Medeiros, Brother Emili wished to mark the dissemination of the document to all the Brothers of the Institute by this symbolic gesture of giving copies into the hands of the Brothers of the General House.

The text of the Document required a great deal of work of composition after the end of the Chapter. The Brother capitulants left the reference text in the hands of a little commission, which then had the task of making grammatical and textual corrections, while respecting the intentions of its authors. Once the editing was completed, the text had to be artistically presented. The Document has been printed in five different formats: one for each official language of the Institute, plus a fifth which uses expressions peculiar to the Spanish of Latin America. The printers worked fast, so that on 9 December 2009 we already had received the finished work.

The work of packing and dispatching the copies from the General House was likewise done quickly, and on 16 December the parcels were delivered to Fiumicino to be flown around the Marist world.

The Document can be read on the Website in the different numbered formats.
