4th of October 2019

After sharing on today’s Gospel, the Capitulants were given an unusual task: in their interest groups, they had to express in an artistic and creative way the theme they had explored in the past weeks (community, formation, constitutions...).

At the end of the morning, each group brought the fruit of their work and the chapter room was transformed into a real art gallery. The last half hour before the Eucharist was used to contemplate the work done by all the groups. The Capitulants were able to immerse themselves in the important themes that had surfaced earlier.

In the afternoon, the Capitulants once more immersed themselves in the various calls, looking for those that affected each of them the most. The facilitator had suggested that they do this work in the garden on a beautiful sunny day.  The interest groups then shared their thoughts in plenary.

We ended this feast of St. Francis with evening prayer; we prayed for peace in many troubled parts of the world; the prayer finished by all the sisters giving each other the sign of peace.
