GENERAL VISITATION IN THE POLISH PROVINCE

From 1 to 31 October 2018,  General Visitation was held in the Polish Province. The theme for the visitation was taken from the letter of St. Paul to Timothy:  God gave us no spirit of fear but power and love and sober thinking (2 Tm 1, 7). The General Councilors, delegates of the General Superior, visited all of our communities in Poland. They travelled from North to South and from West to East traversing Polish roads in the picturesque autumn season. The visitation was marked by mutual openness, trust, joy of meeting together and  sisterly sharing of faith experience and the richness of consecrated life. The beautiful  liturgies were the heart of the visitation path, in search for sanctity and ways where the Province can fully develop.

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
