    Witnessing to the Gospel in a Changing World

    “This theme was inspired by the need to deal with the internalization of the fundamental characteristics of our CICM calling and to find ways to live out its demands today within a social, cultural, and ecclesial context that is very different from that of a few years ago.

    This 16th General Chapter provides us the opportunity to share how we live out our religious missionary calling: the perception of the world and its implications; the demands that impact our lives and the ties it creates among us; the dreams for the future that it awakens in us; and how it opens our lives to God, to our brothers and sisters, and our world.

    Therefore, the theme of the General Chapter places each confrere on a horizon of personal fidelity to his vocation, inviting us to go to the source and essence of our vocation as religious missionaries. In the context of an uncertain and fluid world that is eroding identities, we are invited to come together on the need for a renewed witnessing in view of an authentic proclamation. The Chapter is a journey that begins in the heart of each confrere and continues in the local communities, the Provinces, Regions, and ultimately in Rome.

    By sending you the theme now, I am inviting you to begin to work and pray that the same Spirit who guided our Founder will guide us during the preparation of this Chapter”. (Extract of the message of the Superior General of August 8, 2021, to the confreres)
