As the first week of the Chapter comes to an end, the Capitulars are invited to let the various stories and presentations of the reality of the Congregation and the many conversations of week 1 sift through their minds and hearts, to spend some quiet moments to revisit their journal entries, and to be attentive to what surfaces in the silence, especially the message of the Spirit in the Congregationâ€™s story and the graces of 125 years.
The reflection and sharing focused on three questions:
- What is it that matters most to you? Why? How does it relate to the theme of this Chapter?
- What do you resist most? Why?
- What questions stir in your heart?
