More Photos from the closing day: GenChapter2016_ClosingDay_A
We started this day with the Laudes. In the morning we had a working session in which we continued our work on the recommendations. We also edited the General Chapter's message.
On July 7th our guest was Fr. Nicola Galucci SAC – Provincial Superior of the Italian Province of the Pallotine Fathers and Brothers. During the homily he reminded us of God's endless love. God loves us unconditionally, His love is full of mercy, and always ready to forgive. The Lord is present in the history of each man and each day we need to seek Him anew.

This Sunday afternoon was for us a festival of cultures: colorful national and regional clothes, tastes, songs and dances coming from all these parts of the world, in which we live.
Be witness of joy!

“Sow for yourselves justice,
reap the fruit of piety;
break up for yourselves a new field,
for it is time to seek the LORD,
till he come and rain down justice upon you.”
With much gratitude to the Triune God, the working of the Holy Spirit, through the intercession of St. Vincent Pallotti and Mary, Queen of Apostles, we announce the election of Sr. Izabela Swierad, Superior General of the Pallottine Missionary Sisters.

Reflections on “Christ is our center.” – Consecrated Life and Formation - Report of Josephina D’Souza, SAC, 01 July, 2016.
The center is the living core of a thing:
From it radiates the source of the whole -
All those splinters of matter that make up
The universe of our daily lives, and gently touch
The hungry, the sorrowful, - anywhere there is need.
TODAY WE MUST REMEMBER WHO WE ARE BEFORE GOD!
