The Chapter session opened with a symbolic gesture of â€œstepping inâ€ to the day followed by faith sharing on the Gospel accompanied by the song â€œBecause we love Godâ€ (by Kathy Sherman CSJ). Inspired and strengthened by the Word of God, the Capitulars began dealing with the Proposals to the 14th General Chapter.
After reviewing the resolutions and recommendations of the 13th General Chapter, the proposals to the 14th General Chapter were formally presented to the plenum. The Capitulars then went to their respective continental group for dialogue and discussion. Each group came up with their leanings on each proposal, which were presented later in the plenum.
â€œStepping outâ€ of the day, the Capitulars recalled the â€˜one thing of valueâ€™ from the day.
