Living Hospitality Hopefully and Boldly

From 7 to 11 October the General Curia is hosting the Assembly of Major Superiors, under the title ?Living hospitality hopefully and boldly?, the same theme used for the meetings and the Provincial Chapters to be be held in 2014.

The first day of the Assembly was opened with the celebration of the Eucharist at which the Superior General, Brother Jesús Etayo, presided. After Mass, he delivered his official opening address in which he welcomed the attendees.

One of the speakers on the agenda was Fr Ildefonso Moriones, a Discalced Carmelite, who spoke about the spirituality of martyrdom in reference to the 20th-century Martyrs; this subject was then expanded upon by Brother Elia Tripaldi, the Postulator General, who spoke about our Brother Martyrs who are to be beatified in Tarragona (Spain) on 12 October, and the other 71 of our Confrères who died defending their faith and their devotion to the sick.

In the afternoon, the Provincials were given a briefing on the work of the General Commissions, following the agenda.
