DIARY OF THE CHAPTER - May 13, 2011Men of communion

When, as the Chapter has been doing for the past two weeks, we examine the realities of the Church and the world - but first those of the Assumption - we are struck by the discovery that one of the recurring evils is lack of communion. Men and countries tear each other apart. Believers are in conflict. Christians remain divided... Even our Congregation is having trouble agreeing on models of organization!

But as we have seen constantly from the beginning of the Chapter, one of the key words of this Chapter is the “Logic of communion” - perhaps including first of all, in the redefining of its structures. As we wait for the document to be officially adopted , here are the main thrusts the reflection of the Chapter has taken on this topic which is truly “fundamental”; As has often been mentioned, the model for our communion finds it’s source and dynamism in the Trinitarian Communion. Just as the other two topics, the one on faith (see yesterday’s editorial) and the one on solidarity (see tomorrow’s editorial), this is structured according to the three dimensions of our community life.
