The General Chapter at Subiaco ended

12 September 2018 | Michał Dragan

In the last 8 days at Subiaco, the place of origins of the Benedictine's life, there was held the General Chapter of the Congregation of Annunciation. More than 40 participants from the incorporated and affiliated cloisters discussed about the current situation of Congregation and the questions arising from the common life in their communities.

The General Chapter is called on the regular basis each 4 years. The body exercises within the Congregation the supreme legislative and judiciary powers in all matters concerning the progress and reform of monastic life. It also deals with matters concerning the common good, as well as with the relations between monasteries.

This time the delegates considered the spiritual aspects of monastic brotherhood basing on the pertinent biblical texts and the Rule of Saint Benedict. They were also occupied by the formal things such as the financial statement or requests for affiliation made to the Congregation. The General Chapter has also elected on the end of their debates the new Abbot President for the period of the next 8 years.
