ORDER OF MERCY - GENERAL CHAPTER - Rome 2022
MAY 7, 2022
After Mass and breakfast, the capitulars went to the Vatican for a private audience with Pope Francis.
After pranzo and a mid-day rest, we continued by hearing the witness of some of the feminine communities of the Mercedarian Order.
MAY 8, 2022
We began this Sunday of the Good Shepherd, with the joyful celebration of the Eucharist, which was led and presided over by the friars of the Province of Mexico: Fr. Marcos Saavedra (Vicar of Christ the Redeemer of northern Mexico) who today celebrated his anniversary of priestly ordination with his confreres Frs. Br. Jesús Luja, Br. Agustín Lara and Br.Fernando Díaz concelebrating.
Today's work, nurtured by the deep spiritual message offered during the meeting with Pope Francis, was to program the path of the Order of Mercy for the coming years. This task is accomplished working commissions that jointly developed the General Objective and the specific objectives according to specific areas.
We thank God for the constant assistance of His Holy Spirit, to whom we entrust the future of the work of the Chapter.
