GC35 adopts first three decrees

March 4, 2008 in General, News

gc35_icon.jpgThree decrees have been adopted by the General Congregation in Rome in recent days. The first of them (29 February) concerns ‘Governance at the Service of the Universal Mission‘ and calls for a renewal of the Jesuit mode of government in such a way that it remains authentically Ignatian. The second decree is ‘On Obedience’. It looks at issues which arise from the integration of individual efforts into the mission of the entire Society and offers reflections on how Jesuits may live their relationship of obedience to the papacy today. The third decree is entitled ‘Collaboration at the Heart of Mission‘. It provides instructions on how Jesuits ought to proceed in collaborating with lay people, other religious, and people of other religions so that all concerned may go deeper, both spiritually and practically, in the mission they share.
