A Meeting of the General Commission for Evangelisation
The General Commission for Evangelisation, led by the Councilor General, Fr. Desiré Unen Alimange, O.Carm., held a meeting from the 12th to the 16th of November, 2012. Four members of the Commission attended.
The work that has been done on Evangelisation and Carmelite saints was introduced. This information, in time, will be shared with the Carmelite Family worldwide through printed material and in digital form. Fr. Joseph Hung Tran, O.Carm. the Order’s webmaster, has put together a first draft for the internet. The next topic to be dealt with was that of evangelisation in the world of suffering and in hospitals. Mgr. Jean Marie Mupendawatu, Secretary of the Pontifical Council for Health Workers, (Hospital Ministry), spoke on the topic suffering and hospitals as places for evangelisation, in which ministry both human and spiritual is of the utmost importance and relevance. A visit to Sandro Pertini Hospital gave the members of the Commission an experience of this kind of work. Towards the end of the meeting there was an evaluation of the work of these past six years and the formulation of some proposals for the 2013 General Chapter.
