PRSC in Rome

Our meeting is continuing. Every morning before we go into our meeting room Franti┼íka greets us and asks each one to take a card which will decide at which table we sit for the rest of the day and who our neighbours will be. 
In our work we continued to discern about the future of our congregation. Matthieu Daum gave us some very helpful inputs about the U-process, which is a theory to understand the steps an organisation has to work through in order to bring about change. We need to deepen our “sensing of reality” as the whole Body of the CJ, we need to sense the reality of the world around us and how to involve all the members in this process in order to co-create the future.
We had a lot of group discussion, meeting in pairs. As the sun is shining every day, group meetings can also be in the garden
On Wednesday morning Helen Harrington, who was asked to make a Congregation Study of the CJ, presented her the work she has done so far, which involves the present and future demographics of the congregation.  This gave us very helpful insights into the changes in the membership of the CJ at the moment and what it will look like in 2037.  
We all are very thankful to have our translators who help us to communicate with each other. Marilù translates from Spanish and Italian to English and back and Monika CJ from the MEP helps the German speaking sisters to understand everything. In order that the working groups too can be international Estela CJ from Argentina, Otilia CJ from Romania and Helena CJ from Korea translate for them.
Not to forget: To be awake and fit for the afternoon session we begin with a dance.

PRSC in Rome

The meeting of all the Provincial and Regional Superiors of the CJ continue here in Rome. “Is the CJ future-fit?” was the question around which there was group work, sharing and discussion in the plenary session. We are still continuing to respond to this challenging question. On Saturday we made a pilgrimage to the Holy House of Loreto, because of its association with both CJ and IBVM. This beautiful spot in Italy inspires many people to come and seek Our Lady’s intercession.  On her first visit to Rome in 1621, Mary Ward also prayed in the Holy House of Loreto.  (Text and photos/eka)
