DIARY OF THE CHAPTER - May 16, 2011Disciples in the same faith

The title of this page already indicates an accent proper to the Chapter of 2011 with respect to that of 2005: the first of three “fundamental orientations” which is being up-dated was first called “Men of Faith, announcing (or: proposing) the faith”. This time, we are leaning towards “disciples in the same faith”. Without a doubt the celebration of the Bicentennial of the birth of Fr. d’Alzon has something to do with it: in the footsteps of our founder, we should always (re)discover ourselves as disciples of Christ. And disciples together, in the faith which we share in common.

Another clear desire of this 32nd Chapter with reference to the preceding Chapter is to consider each of these three orientations – Faith, Communion, Solidarity with the poor – according to the three dimensions of our religious life: for the personal life, for the fraternal life, for the mission. As we await the adoption of the corresponding documents, here already are a few major features.
