The Challenges Presented by GA '98


Almost a year after the 39th General Assembly of the Congregation of the Mission, Vincentiana wishes to invite its readers to reflect again on the Assembly in order to bring back its memory and to stimulate its applications. To this end, five members of the Congregation, who have specific competencies, were asked to write articles on each of the five commitments of the Final Document of our Assembly. These articles offer a reflection on those commitments by situating them in the reality of our world and by showing how they are pertinent today and are already, to a certain degree, in the process of application.

These articles, which were written freely by their authors, are not an "official commentary" on the Final Document but simply personal reflections offered by some members of the Congregation to the readers of Vincentiana.
