CONCLUSIONS, AIMS AND HOPES FOR THE GENERAL CHAPTER
2012

 

 

I – Born in the Church by the action of the Holy Spirit, our way of life is “to observe the Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ living in obedience, poverty and chastity, engaged to follow Jesus Christ according to the example of Saint Francis” being witnesses and makers of unity and communion (cf. Fond. Const.).

That engage us :

To grow in our Franciscan identity and to make it visible by what we are and by what we want to live : union and communion.

 

II – In the following of Jesus Christ the Father asks us, consecrates us and sends us to continue the salvation mission of Jesus Christ (cf. Const. Mission and Life – Sent by the Father).

That engage us :

To dare like Francis and Mother Louise new ways where the Gospel and the needs of our brothers will call us.

 

III – Our fraternal life is born from communion of love between the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (cf. Our Life in Fraternity).

That engage us :

To open our fraternities to the interculturality perceived as a grace.

 

IV – We are an international Institute. Formation is there incultured and always takes in account Tradition and culture of the Congregation (cf. Const. The Persons – Formation Itinerary).

That engage us :

To start a way towards a solid and permanent formation in all dimensions of our being.

 

V – Congregational solidarity in all levels engages us to live disponibility, itinerary spirit and the grace of international and intercultural fraternity (cf. Const. Structures and Government).

That engage us :

To welcome structural change in what it is : an open door to the life and the mission.

 

FRANCISCAN MISSIONNARIES OF OUR LADY, witnesses and builders of communion, let us take the Most Holy Virgin Mary as the first model whom Saint Francis venerated particularly and left us as heritage. Let us follow the example of Mary Immaculate who called herself the servant of God (cf. TOR 4, 17).
