The title of the report of Saturday, 27 April 2013, 19th day of the SMA General Assembly is based on the meditation of the day which invites us to change the way we look at matters. This meditation was given by Father Malachy Flanagan, Irish SMA. It was also the anniversary of the independence of Togo and we had a special thought for the Togolese people and for all SMA confreres working in Togo.
This Friday, 26 April 2013, the 18th day of the SMA General Assembly, we continued the reflections on Formation, Spirituality & Lifestyle, Administration and Finance.
The homily for the Mass of that day was given by Father José Ramón Carballada SMA, Superior of the Spanish District. It is based on John 14: 1-6.
The highlight of the day was the adoption in plenary session of the text on the challenges and priorities for formation, spirituality & lifestyle, finance and administration. These preliminary texts will serve as basis for the development of the Action Plan (AP) for the next six years. Discussions on the AP began this morning.
Group reflections continued. Yesterday the French-speaking delegates visited the SMA General Archives. The English-speakers had visited it last Thursday.
