GC Update Thursday 25th September

In today’s faith-sharing from the Gospel of Luke we hear that Herod is perplexed about this Jesus…he kept trying to see him. Perhaps Herod was threatened by Jesus’power?

The short passage called some to ask, “what makes me wonder about Jesus?” In trying to see Jesus or find Jesus, “what are we looking for?”

Now that the elections of the new leadership is over, we can turn back to formulating our goals for the next eight years. We worked in our “Base groups”on these “calls”or “directions” for the better part of the day. It was a wrestling act trying to find that “right”way forward in stating clearly what we have heard from the body.

Other conversations around issues such as “Human Trafficking”and other justice issues  were discussed before the end of the day’s work. One sister said, “somehow we feel more grounded in what we are asking the new leadership to do because we know who they are and now we must focus on what we’re calling them to do.”There was a lot of conversation, re-wording, negotiating and ultimately sending the fruits of our labour off to the writing group.

Keep the prayers coming.


 Guess who’s birthday it was today?   (Answer lies in the land of Aus)

  1. The birthday lady looks great too. You all sound very much at peace from the description of your work today. Blessings on our new leadership team, on each of you. We were delighted with the news yesterday. And peace and blessings on those who walked with us at important moments of reflection here in Peru. More anon. Love to all, Mary Elizabeth

  2. Thank you to all gathered for your commitment and generosity over the past number of weeks. The daily updates are wonderful and one feels so part of what is going on. Sincere thanks to Marian and the outgoing leadership team for their selflessness over the past eight years and welcome to Noelle and team. Thank you to them for accepting this Mission.
    Le grá agus Ráth Dé oraibh i gcónaí. Maria Hyland
