I will walk in the presence of the Lord (Lit.)
Abraham also accompanies us today with his faith that does not deny anything of himself to his Lord, not even his only-begotten love. Our experience in the Chapter is becoming increasingly enriching precisely as a journey of faith and trust that opens us to hope even in the face of the inevitable difficulties.
We celebrated the Mass for vocations to religious life. Jesus himself in the Gospel, as Fr. Ugo reminded us, recommended two prayers that we should never tire of addressing to the Father: for the unity and for the generous response to work in his field where the harvest is plentiful and the workers are few.
The work continues apace: we only tell you that the secretaries of the groups are gradually turning on, they don't sleep anymore, they don't remember the night anymore but on the shining of the sun on the chapter!
Tomorrow ... tomorrow will be a day of intense work but in joy and in fraternity.
