Pray in Secret: Our Father!!!!!!


One of my old masters told me: "The most perfect prayer is that of Jesus. Now he has taught us the '' Pater ''! Whatever your despair, enter into yourself, in secret, and 'your personal' 'Pater' following the pattern that Jesus has left us! ".

 Later I adapted my questions, my adorations, my thanks, my acts of compulsion to the '' Pater ''. I always found myself understood and fulfilled!
You definitely have a problem. Collect yourself in the secret of God; far from everything that is not him. And say at the bottom of the heart:
Our Father, who are my inner heaven, let your name be sanctified from all my being, and particularly in this moment of trial I am going through. Come your kingdom. Your Christ, manifestation of your kingdom, deigns to be incarnated in my problem.
Thy will be done because it is holy. On earth, in my problem, as in heaven!
Give us today our daily bread!
The bread is identified today with the solution of this problem!
Forgive us our debts, especially those that have led me to this situation, as we forgive them ...
And do not lead us into temptation, that of despair, of forgetfulness of you.
But deliver us from the evil one and its pitfalls, especially ...
Because yours is the kingdom ...
And your Father, who sees in secret, will grant it to you!

Second Day of the General Council Meeting!!!!!

Today we began the Meeting with a prayer prepared by Br. Pio Murat....the prayer really prepared us well to spend the day effectively and fruitfully....
 Friars Sergio, representing the Brazilian provinces.....has been a very nice friar....was very much active in his conference .....
 Br. Hugo, representing Spanish and Portuguese speaking provinces of the Order....He is also shouldering the responsibility of Mission office....he made it a point to visit all the mission territories of the Order...besides being available to his conferences....
 Friar Norbert representing all African conferences....he joined the General council after two years when Br. Jean Bertin was nominated as a Bishop....he tried his best to visit and be present in all the provinces of Africa...obtaining visas for various African countries is a big pain....not very easy to obtain
 Friars Pio and Stefan both representing the conferences of Centre and East Europe.....both were always available for the friars....they also helped other conferences of the Order.....
 The last General Chapter decided to have two councillors for Asia....Br. Victorious replaced Br. Cesar Acuin who discontinued after one year of service as GC....Victorious has been doing well....visited most of the provinces ....he has been a blessing to our friars in PAAC conferences... 

Br. Mark, who was the only one re-elected from the last General council...his presence in the council was a blessing....a friar rich in knowledge....knows many things of the Order....He has visited his conference of America....he also helped other conferences too......
