Faith-sharing in the groups was on the Gospel of the day: Lk. 11:37-41
At the beginning of the session, the participants were given time to view the results of the previous day and to identify recurrent patterns. The CLT gave an input by way of a creative presentation depicting their leadership journey as in a voyage together in a boat, experiencing the different weathers in the sea – calm, strong waves, dark clouds, storm, and peace.
At their respective tables, the participants then shared with one another what the inputs (since yesterday) mean for them, what needs to be followed-up, and what could happen if they don’t follow them up; what could be the possible consequences. Contemplative silence followed.
Another activity followed which is called Marketplace of Topics. Some topics of concern were laid along the corridors and the participants are to choose their own topic of interest, which formed a new set of groupings. In their respective groups, they gave their suggestions on how to respond to the particular topic of concern for leadership. These suggestions were then presented to the plenum. Other suggestions were given by other participants in the plenum.
In the afternoon, Sr. Carmen Elisa Bandeo, Mission Secretary, shared about her work, some updates on VIVAT since the last General Chapter, the Sicily Project, and collaborations with the Provinces/Regions.
