Thought of Saint Augustine
Because every man is a neighbor to all men, one should not allow any kind of distance where there is a common nature.
(En. in ps. 118, S 8, 2)
Your prayer is a conversation with God. When you read, it is God who is speaking, when you pray, it is with God that you are speaking.
We dwell in the Lord when we are his body and he dwells in us when we are his temple.

Congress for Bursars


The Economic Commission of the Order has just conducted a Congress for the Bursars of our circumscriptions. The aims of the Congress were to

1. prepare the whole Order to discuss how we might better share our resources across the Order in the years to come
2. consider how we might accomplish the first four Acts of the Intermediate General Chapter, including greater transparency and accountability across all levels of the Order
3. review the role of the Econome in light of modern social realities and legal requirements

The tasks that lie ahead for the Order are considerable and the requirements on our Economes are considerable; after the Congress the Bursar’s have departed with significant information for the future, good dialogue among themselves and have left the Economic Commission with guidelines for the preparation of discussion papers to be looked at by all circumscriptions next year and for the preparation of draft documents for reporting by all circumscriptions at future General Chapters.

It was clear to the Economes that they have roles as managers of investments, as caretakers of the Order’s goods, as servants of the Provincial and Council and a special task as watchdogs over the economic reputation of the Order. Thank God for their dedication!
