On the afternoon of January 9, 2020, the Minister General, the Assistants General and the General Econom visited the Seraphicum in Rome to personally inspect various locations on site. They needed to reflect more thoroughly on these areas before making any decisions.

They first met Friar Emil KUMKA, the Librarian, who conducted the Definitors to the library in order to explain the situation there.
