Sunday 23/10/2011 - Election of General Superior

 

The Election of the General Superior
 
Today on Sunday, October 23rd, 2011 Sr. M. Jane Livesey CJ from the English Province was elected as the new General Superior for the next nine years.
 
This is a day of gratitude and joy. The election of the four General Assistants will take place in the coming days.
During the preparation for the election, Sr. M. Mechtild Meckl CJ called “Christ into our midst as our help and witness.” She did this with the words of St. Ignatius: “in all reverence I call on Christ, the eternal Wisdom as my witness.”
Immediately before the election the delegates remained in silence for half an hour to discern together in prayer with Christ “the person  who is suitable today to carry this weight of responsibility for the future.”
