Fifty years after the close of the Second Vatican Council, its key concepts, most notably, aggiornamento, the Italian term for “bringing up to date”, as well as ressourcement, a critical engagement with the current situation in light of the lessons of the past, continue to capture the imagination of the contemporary disciple in Christ's mission. Our day will be spent in prayerfully exploring Christian world mission in light of the current signs of the times, in an attempt to discern where the Spirit is leading our religious communities. Particular attention will be paid to the gift of the arts as manifested in the diversity of cultures. Activities include some presentations, quiet prayer time, and small group discussions (which may take place in various languages). Each participant is invited to bring a symbol of her or his religious community's charism.
