SVD General Chapter participants meet and listen to Pope Francis
A special audience with the Pope has always been one of the highlights of the General Chapter of the Society of the Divine Word. For the 18th General Chapter this event took place on 22 June 2018 in the Pope Clemens VIII Hall at the Vatican. At 1 pm, Pope Francis appeared with a bright smile before the 155-member contingent of SVD priests, brothers and lay partners, who were equally enthusiastic to see him.
After a brief introduction by Father General Superior, Pope Francis proceeded to deliver a talk in Spanish that corresponded with the theme of the General Chapter, “‘The Love of Christ impels us’ (2 Cor 5:14): Rooted in the Word, Committed to His Mission.” In addition to reminding the members of the Society about the missionary nature of the Pauline phrase which was selected for the theme of the Chapter, Pope Francis made his exhortations with three concise points.
