“…more by our life than by our words” (Const. 24). Missionaries of the Tenderness and Love of God”: was the theme of the General Congregation that was held from the 18th of September to the 1st of October, 2016 at the Casa Sao Nuno in Fatima, Portugal. This important meeting that took place in a fraternal setting, offered the opportunity for reflection on a variety of topics related to the life of our Order. The participants were very appreciative of the presence and the input of Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, Archbishop of Manila and President of Caritas International. The final message from the meeting transmits the stimulation that people received over those days, which may be helpful to further reflection in our entire Order. For that reason, we decided to put a record of that important assembly at the centre of this edition of CITOC-magazine.

On the 20th of March, 2016, the 5th centenary of the death of Blessed Baptist Spagnoli, known as the Mantuan, opened. Our Postulator General, Dr. Giovanna Brizi, in what she writes, offers us a very profound account of this figure, highlighting his importance for the Order, the Church and the culture of the time. Along with him we remember another Carmelite blessed who, like the Mantuan, was Prior General of the Order in the 16th century, that is, John Soreth. We offer an interview with Bryan Deschamps, the author of the critical edition of the Blessed’s Expositio paraenetica, published recently. We regret to say, that since this interview Brian Deschamps has died.

The year 2016 could well be called the Year of the Carmelite Bishops, since Pope Francis appointed three of our brothers bishops in three different continents: Paul Horan, Bishop of Mutare in Zimbabwe, Francisco de Sales Alencar, Bishop of Cajazeiras in Brazil, and Henricus Pidyarto Gunawan, Bishop of Malang in Indonesia. We include short reports on their episcopal ordinations.

The other contributions offer a variety of information on the present life of the Order. Here I would like to name just a few. An important event for the Church and for young people around the world was the World Youth Day in Krakow, within which a Carmelite Day was held. In Tanzania a successful meeting of the Carmelite Family in Africa was held. In Indonesia, the formation directors and vocation directors of the whole Order gathered for an ongoing formation meeting.

Once again you will find in this issue of CITOC-magazine a variety of news items that show the vitality of our Order.

From the 15th of the 20th of February, just gone by, in the “Bãi Dâu”, diocesan retreat centre in Vung Tau (Vietnam) the 3rd International Meeting of the Asia-Australia-Oceania Carmelite Laity took place. The theme of the meeting was: “From Community to Family. How Lay Carmelites live their Charism in their daily life” The three principal speakers were, the Prior General of the Order, Fr. Fernando Millán Romeral, O.Carm., who spoke about “Carmel and Family – a relationship with a long history”, Fr.Benny Phang Khong Wing, O.Carm., Councillor General for this geographical area, who spoke on the theme, “Building “Theotokos” Families”, and Fr. Michael Kissane, O.Carm., Prior Provincial of the North American Province of St. Elias, who, taking a lead from the Apostolic Exhortatiion, “Amoris Laetitia”- focused on St. Therese of Lisieux and Blessed Titus Brandsma, as Carmelite examples of a family based spirituality. In addition, various lay Carmelites from different communities shared their experiences in a way that was very enriching. Each input was followed by work in groups and reflection in common.

Some 170 people took part in the event, mainly from the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Australia and New Zealand). The very impressive preparation and organisation by the Vietnamese friars and the Donum Dei missionaries made this a very important time of reflection and fraternity for the growth of the Carmelite Family in this part of the world.

Present were Frs Michael Farrugia, Procurator General, Giovanni Grosso (Ita), Edmondo Caruana (Mel), Pius Robert Manik (Indo) and Mario Esposito (SEL), Secretary. Fr Giuseppe Midili (Ita) was absent due to illness. As our former Chairman is now Bishop Francisco de Sales Alencar in Brazil, Fr Michael Farrugia was asked by the General Council to continue as the Acting Chairman of the Commission.

During the meeting, a considerable amount of time was dedicated to the planning of an International Congress - The Role and Place of Liturgy in the Carmelite Order now scheduled for Sassone from April 15-21, 2018. This congress is held in keeping with the indications received from the last General Chapter. Within the next month, all the Provincials and Commissaries will receive a questionnaire to help prepare for the Congress.

The Commission also made further progress on the Ritual for the Third Order, the Liturgical Calendar, the Rites for Simple and Solemn Profession, and the Carmelite Office Book. A few texts still remain to be translated and approved by the Congregation for Divine Worship, but good progress has been made.

The next meeting of the Commission will be in the fall of 2017.
