The assembly began this last day by remembering in our prayers all those who died or were wounded in the terrorist attack yesterday in Nice…. Fr. Tomaz ended with some powerful words: “Let’s keep dreaming, but let’s dream together. If one person dreams alone, the dream remains a dream. But if we dream together, the dream becomes a reality.”
After the lunch break, Gabriel Naranjo of Colombia presented the final document on behalf of the Synthesis and Redaction Commission. He explained in detail how the committee drafted and prepared the document.
Frédéric Pellefigue from the Commission on Synthesis and Redaction presented proposed general lines of action. The floor was then opened for comments. As expected, many delegates made observations and suggestions. After lunch, the delegates again met in continental groups to discuss concrete lines of action for each conference. They will return tomorrow for a plenary session.
…the moderator, announced that the Central Commission wanted to assure the delegates that the final document would likely be only five or six pages. The assembly then once more went into small group discussions over the last part of the final document, on what commitments the Congregation could make regarding our missions and apostolic work.
