Prayer in Preparation for the Chapter

In the Letter of Convocation of the Chapter, the Minister General has recalls the importance of the participation and cooperation of the whole Order, through prayer, in the success of the 2015 General Chapter: “I warmly invite each Brother of the Order to pray intensely, to think wisely and prepare responsibly for this key event in our life and mission.”

The Secretariat of the Chapter has prepared some formulas for prayer, to be inserted in the breviary, and to be recited each day. These include brief prayer intentions to be used at the end of the intercessions of Lauds and Vespers, and a choice of prayers for the fraternity, to start at the beginning of Lent.

The successful outcome of the General Chapter is linked to, and relies on, the prayers of all the Order, of each fraternity and each friar.
