Opening of the Enlarged General Council

The Enlarged General Council of the brothers was scheduled to take place via Zoom from 14-17 June.   Joining the General Government are the provincial, regional and delegation superiors, as well as a representative of the General Government of our sscc sisters. 

Tuesday 14th was dedicated to the sscc mission, with a talk by Martin Königstein, Provincial Superior of Germany.  Martin emphasised how mission is a going out, a leaving, a getting up and leaving behind. Reflecting, for example, on the Berlin community, leaving has meant moving away from what some brothers have been used to. It is also involves a process of decentring oneself in order to place God and his Gospel at the centre.

There was time for the brothers to share some of the features of sscc mission today, giving some examples. Among the themes raised were communion in mission, the challenges of a secularised society, sharing mission with the laity, moving out of comfort zones and new missionary horizons.
