Meeting between the Minister General, General Definitory and the Visitators General 2015

The 2015 Meeting between the Minister General and General Definitory and the Visitators General began this week at the OFM General Curia.

The Canonical Visitation is regulated by the Code of Canon Law, by our Constitutions and General Statutes, by the Statutes for the Canonical Visitation andPresidency of the Provincial Chapter, as well as by other documents of the Church. It pertains to the Minister to carry out the Canonical Visitation either personally or through Delegates (cf. SSCV 1). During the Canonical Visitation, the Visitator “represents the Minister and acts in his name (SSCV 8 §1). Even though it may have special legal connotations, the Canonical Visitation must, however, be carried out in the spirit which Francis indicated for visits to the Friars.

Here is the text of the Minister General’s talk:
