Formation of the Guardians of the Custody of the Holy Land

From 2 to 7 February 2020, a formation meeting was held for the Guardians and Superiors of the Custody of the Holy Land. The meeting, organized by the Moderator of the on-going Formation of the Custody, Br.  Marcelo Cichinelli, took place on Mount Tabor and was animated by Br. Antonio Scabio, General Definitor, and Br. Cesare Vaiani, General  Secretary for formation and studies. The two speakers took turns, proposing a guided reading of the Handbook for the Guardians, applied to the particular context of the Holy Land, and some insights into issues useful for the service of the Guardian and Superior in the perspective of social psychology. On the first day, the Custos of the Holy Land, Br. Francesco Patton, opened the proceedings, inserting this meeting in the ongoing formation of the Custody. The place of the transfiguration of the Lord, with bright days, cheered the participants. The local community welcomed the participants fraternally, with the help of the young members of Mondo X. The participants, in the final verification, underlined the usefulness of this meeting to perform their important service better and better.
