Meeting of Brothers and Sisters of the Second Stage (Spain)


On March 1 and 2, SSCC brothers and sisters of the Second Stage group met at the SSCC sisters' house in San Lorenzo de El Escorial (Spain) for two days of meetings to work on the Synod and their involvement in it. On 1 March, Eva Fernández Mateo, President of General Catholic Action, spoke on the theme: "The Synod: a path of hope for the Church", highlighting how "in this synod, the results are not important. What matters is the journey. We are already practicing the Way … transformation, change, teamwork, recovering the sense of the People of God, bringing together bishops, cardinals, laity and priests".

On 2 March, there was an online intervention by Fernando Cordero sscc who, from the perspective of our charism, tried to analyse the different challenges we face. He shared some helpful metaphors, such as those of the round tables in the Paul VI Hall, symbolising the People of God meeting together and being open to the presence of the Spirit.

One of the questions addressed at the meeting was as follows: "If we, sscc, were sent to the Synod... what could we contribute? In the end, we believe that the Congregation has more to contribute than we thought"
