Appointments in Spain-Italy

July 12, 2017

On Monday, July 10, Mª Carmen Martín, Provincial Superior, communicated the appointments of Local Superiors for the next triennium through a circular letter to all the Sisters of the Province. The letter began with a brief reflection on the Pope’s homily at the 25th anniversary Mass of his episcopal consecration, in which he emphasized three words: Arise !, Look !, Wait !, words that mark the way which Abraham must follow, as we are told in Genesis:
“They speak to me about faith because God is greater than our possibilities; trust because we do not walk alone; listening because it is He who is marking our path; of availability towards a horizon that we do not glimpse entirely …
They are imperatives that are not addressed to each individually, but to the Body and as a Province. And this basic attitude – attitude of faith in short – is what puts us in a position to live with depth and welcome the appointments for the next triennium and the assignments of this moment”.
Appointments of Local Superiors
In her circular, Mª Carmen Martín recalls that the appointment of Superiors corresponds to the Superior General, who can delegate her authority to the Provincial to appoint some superiors, appointments that, in such case, the Superior General must confirm. (Cf. CFI 276, DNC 213)
