New Videos for Rethinking the Constitutions

The Executive Committee for the Revision of the Constitutions (CERC), together with the General Definitory, has produced a series of videos to be used at Friary House Chapters as a tool for deeper reflection on the renewal of the Order.

There are six short presentations that bring together the viewpoints of some friars of the Order on the following themes:

1. Authority and Power According to Saint Francis
2. Solidarity and Economic Sharing from the Franciscan Perspective
3. Prophecy, Mission and Charism
4. Provincialism
5. Relations at the Federation and Jurisdictional Level
6. Chapters

As you can see, all of the themes revolve around the last chapter of the current Constitutions and are designed to show the important values behind the review process, the problems that have been perceived and some possible solutions. In this way, we wanted to present a mosaic of different voices and perspectives, which express the wide variety of opinions within the Order, as well as the basic principles on which our communion is founded.
Friary House Chapters will be able to use this material freely, in ways that are more convenient to the fraternities. It is very important that we generate real discussion among the friars, which can then be shared, in order to enrich our efforts to be more faithful to the evangelical vocation we have received.
