I shall no longer call you servants; I call you friends

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.  No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.  You are my friends if you do what I command you.  I do not call you servants  any longer, because the servant does not know what the master is doing; but I have called you friends, because I have made known to you everything that I have heard from my Father. You did not choose me but I chose you.”

Inspired by the Word of God the Chapter continued in the communal discernments on Congregational Directions and Proposals to the 14th General Chapter.

There was greater clarity after presentations, reflections and more clarifications were made on the Proposals.

Deeper conversations regarding the third draft of the Congregational Directions were done, this time, in the language groups.  The Capitulars joined those speaking the same mother tongue.
