Susret provincijalnih ekonoma u Rimu
Meeting of European Provincials and Provincial Treasurers
Rome, Italy – 20 – 23 February 2012
A total of 39 Ursulines and lay collaborators from different provinces in Europe gathered in Rome for a meeting that focused on the responsibility, both moral and spiritual, to service as guardians of materials goods.
The first presentation was on “Ursuline Spirituality in the Light of Our Charism in Our Service of Treasurer”. M. Colette Lignon and Sister Angela Poggi presented this topic keeping as the focal point Angela’s words to us: “…have Jesus Christ as your only treasure….” And Mathew’s gospel: “Where your treasure is, there will you heart be also”. (Mt. 6: 19-21)
Among the topics presented and discussed were:
Social Teaching of the Church
Ethics in business: Gospel Prophets
The Face of Jesus Christ in our ageing and sick sisters
Collaboration and Subsidiarity at the local, provincial, general levels
Collaboration with the Laity, Church and State
There has been a wealth of sharing among the participants in regard to these topics. Among those participating were 12 lay collaborators who have faithfully worked for and with the Ursulines in the area of finances.
We are grateful for all who contributed to making this meeting a successful one.
