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.

As Carmelites We live our life of allegiance to Jesus Christ and to serve Him faithfully with a pure heart and a clear conscience through a commitment to seek the face of the living God (the contemplative dimension of life), through prayer, through fraternity, and through service (diakonia). These three fundamental elements of the charism are not distinct and unrelated values, but closely interwoven. 

All of these we live under the protection, inspiration and guidance of Mary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, whom we honor as "our Mother and sister."
