The day went by without much in the way of news. After the last day’s papal audience, there were no birthdays or feast days to celebrate the next day. Humberto Enriques was the host for the day which started as usual with the Communal Wisdom Prayer (Luke 10:1-9), … “Cure the sick who are there, and say, ‘The kingdom of God has come unto you”.

The day’s work was devoted to reviewing and approving, where appropriate, the conclusions and recommendations documents that the capitulants worked on Saturday on the following topics:

  • Laity
  • Ageing
  • Identity
  • Ongoing formation
  • Safeguarding
  • Secretariat, communications
  • Structures (Territorial and General Administration)
  • JPIC
  • Internationality and Mission

Two of the topics to be discussed were not accepted, pending the approval tomorrow of the proposed amendments, modifications and clarifications: Safeguarding and Structures (Territorial and General Administration). 

At the end of the day, during the last of the breaks, the official T-shirts were distributed to each of the capitulants, as well as to the invited guests and all the staff of the General Chapter.

The Mass at the end of the day was presided by the Sam Maranresy, Provincial of Indonesia, together with Gregorius Hertanto, delegate of Indonesia.
