Descrição da editora
The text presented here is the result of the last General Chapter, celebrated in Assisi around the Feast of Pentecost. Of course, the Chapter was an experience much greater than what the written texts can express; but we believe that through these texts we can share with you some of the essential elements of the experience we had. In this way, we hope to set in motion a similar experience, and perhaps an even better one, for all the brothers of the Order.
Three texts are being offered: the final document, the decisions of the Chapter for the next six years and the texts that relate to the wonderful audience granted to us by Pope Francis. While the document takes as its starting point the experience we shared in Chapter and sets forth some general reflections that emerged during those days, the decisions are more operational and practical in their style. Finally, the texts from the audience are a grateful memory of a “high” moment for the whole Order in the presence of the Pope.
