3rd of October 2019
In the morning, we celebrated the Eucharist at 7 am so that we could leave for the Vatican at 9:30 am. In fact, at 12:30 p.m., a private audience with the Holy Father was scheduled for us. It was a very intense moment! Sister Susan Flood, Superior General, addressed some heartfelt words to the Pope. He then commented on the theme of our General Chapter, encouraged us and gave us concrete orientations for our way ahead.
In the afternoon, the General Assembly of the Capitulants began at 4:30 pm. After a time of personal reflection, the Sisters expressed what they felt at the end of this week of elections. Then they shared in table groups and finally in the plenary assembly.
The day concluded with a prayer of thanksgiving together.
