P1010399Versió catalana. Versió castellana. The third day of the Chapter began with the celebration of the Eucharist and the Morning Prayer led by Father Gonzalo. During the Mass the Holy Spirit was invoked especially to help in choosing the new Provincial and his council which has to be carried out during the morning. In his homily Fr Gonzalo has pointedout the importance of personal and community responsibility, trusting the Lord. From the Gospel reflexion, Fr. Gonzalo stated that, the Lord asks us to take our responsibility seriously, purify personal motivations and fully trust Him. He also recalled that Fr. Claret when he accepted the request of the Archbishop of Santiago de Cuba did not make the decision alone, but previously he consulted with the people nearby. All these points of the reflection helped the personal in their discernment before the election of Fr Provincial and his council.

After invoking the Holy Spirit with the chant of “Veni Creator Spiritus”, and after reading Constitution no. 112 and the numbers 444 and 445 of the Directory, the Chapter has elected Fr. Ricard Costa-Jussà as the new Provincial of Claretian Missionaries of Province of Catalonia.
