Animation and Governance in the Service of the Gospel Proclamation – day 3 and 4

9 April 2021

We are inspired by the Word of Jesus to his disciples: “You give them something to eat…”. We thank Him for making us witnesses of the presence of His Spirit among us and He counts on each one of us for the mission.

The meeting was held by zones. In the morning with the teams from Africa, East Asia and South Asia and in the afternoon with the teams from Europe, Latin America and Our Lady of Guadalupe.

In our going out into the deep, in our sharing and enlightenment, we explored the potentials and possibilities that we have and that are waiting to be unleashed, in order to continue to realise the six-year project. We understood that in looking at the fissures or gaps it is necessary to bring a spirit of curiosity, openness that engages with personal responsibility for change: “What can I get involved in?”

The spiritual dialogues in pairs and the sharing in groups with an appreciative eye on the challenges we face and the missionary aspirations were very rich.

At the end of the day, we joined in a silent and contemplative thanksgiving for the passage of God accomplished in each one of us, preparing our hearts for the fourth day (April 9th). On this day we are invited to deepen and review, in an atmosphere of prayer and inner silence, what we have experienced during these days, letting emerge what resonates most in each one of us. …. To then continue the discernment.

During these days, the text “María Antonia París, friend and companion in the journey” is being distributed.
