A SNIPPET FROM THIS WEEK'S NEWSLETTER -
The Prayer of the First Companions of Ignatius.
We knew full-well
that though we were weak men
from regions far apart
and of widely differing customs,
still the most kind and loveing Lord
had mercifully brough us together
and made us one.
And so we came to agree
that we must not undo God's doing,
but rather embody that union
and daily firm its bonds
through mutual understanding
and fraternal concern.
For even great hardships
in working to better unite God and man-
hardships which would frustrate our best efforts
if each worked alone-
could surely be borne and overcome
by our shared courage
and united strength.
The 36th General Congregation (GC 36) is being convoked in Rome for two reasons: Fr Adolfo Nicolas' resignation, which consequently requires election of a new Superior General, and the regular need to consider contemporary developments of major importance and long lasting impact on the Society of Jesus and its service of the Church of the world. It begins with the celebration of the Eucharist this Sunday 2 October 2016 at the General Curia in Rome. Australia will have four representatives—Fathers Brian McCoy sj and Steve Curtin sj representing the Province, Fr Mark Raper sj as President of the Jesuit Asia Pacific Conference and Br Ian Cribb sj as a representative of Jesuit brothers in Asia-Pacific region. Please keep all of our representatives in your prayers.
