Starting from considering the different paths already in progress, we will exchange our views to seek out together’ how to implement this process in the various juridico-territorial entities of which our Institute is composed so that it may not be a mere copy/reproduction of what has been done in Italy.

At the same time, the General Council will accompany the work, to ensure that there may remain common to the whole Institute what is essential in the Re-planning process, that is, the method which supports the ‘new way’ of looking at reality.

In fact, the ‘re-planning process’ demands that, while making the different perspectives interact, all of us ‘together’ commit ourselves ‘to read’ the reality in the light of the Word and that, in each different situation, we help each other to discern the Lord’s appeals in order to revive in us the charism of charity and re-express it in daily life (cf Acts of the XXVII G.C. Nos. 1.2; 4.3; 5.1; 5.2).

 May the Holy Spirit guide us during these days of reflection and dialogue.
