The General Commission for Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation met for its last session of the sessennium from 6-11 May 2019. Since its composition in 2014 it has been seized with the task of promoting the formation, development and animation of JPIC structures in the whole Carmelite Family. Over the course of the past five years the General Commission has been working towards the publication of a Carmelite JPIC Handbook. At the end of our latest meeting we presented the Prior General, Fr Fernando Millan Romeral, O.Carm., with a copy of the handbook entitled "From Contemplation to Action: Handbook for Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation in the Carmelite Tradition". The document acknowledges that there has always existed in Carmelite consciousness the desire to be of service to God and one’s neighbour in diverse ministries of prayer, pastoral care, education and advocacy. During the July 2017 Carmelite JPIC International Congress at Fatima, participants expressed the desire to have a handbook to help those appointed to JPIC ministries by providing information on the foundations, nature and methodology of Carmelite JPIC ministries.

Appreciation and gratitude go to all the members of the Commission who were drawn from various branches of the Carmelite Family – friars, consecrated religious sisters and a lay woman. The members of the Commission are: Frs Conrad Mutizamhepo, O.Carm (Praeses), Hariawan Franciscus Adji, O.Carm. (Indo), Eduardo Agosta Scarel, O.Carm. (ACV), Mark Zittle, O.Carm. (SEL), Jane Remson, COLMC, Annah Theresa Nyadombo, HLMC, and Ester Martin Lozano (Karit). Fr Florent Dundji Dhenyi, O.Carm. (Ita-Con) (RIP) was a member of the Commission but died in the DR Congo on 6th June 2017.

From Contemplation to Action – Handbook JPIC 2013-2019

Introduction

God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.. Gen 1:31 (NIV)

“The ultimate purpose of other creatures is not to be found in us. Rather, all creatures are moving forward with us and through us towards a common point of arrival, which is God, in that transcendent fullness where the risen Christ embraces and illumines all things.”
Pope Francis, Laudato Si’

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for
the blind, to set the oppressed free” –
Luke 4:18, Is 61:1 (NIV)
