Beloved, let us love one another, because love is from God” (1 John 4:7-16). This text was used for the Communal Wisdom Prayer in the morning. Ho Tombokan, as Host for the day, recalled that it was the feast of St. Jerome and greeted Moacir Goulart, provincial of Curitiba (Brazil) and Yvon Banackissa, provincial of UAF, on their birthdays.

As the consultation by the Superior General for the General Assistants continued, the capitulants again went back to the matters for consideration raised in the first few days. On this occasion, the dialogue was done in small groups by themes. Each member of the Chapter chose the one in which he or she wished to participate.

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

At the end of the day’s work, all gathered in the main hall and voted on the remaining proposed amendments to the Constitutions.

Finally, daily mass was celebrated, presided by Sylvester To Warwakai, provincial of Papua New Guinea.
