As Capuchin Bishops called to serve the Church



The morning air in Assisi is filled with the Spirit of Capuchin friars….Bishops from all over the world…..wearing a big smile…..happy as ever to serve the Lord…..they are happy to be Capuchins serving the dioceses  and the clergy……most of them wear the Capuchin habits in their day today activities…..while on administration they wear the Bishop’s paraphernalia …..what is striking is the simplicity which we can see in these friars-Bishops…..they love to be Capuchins…..serving the people of God…..
For the meeting there 56 Bishops from all over the world….out of which there 15 Bishops from Brazil alone…there are 16 Bishops from Africa….
This morning began with some practical information for the meeting…..the technical information …
General Minister said that with Joy we have gathered here….6 years ago we met and that joy and experience is still alive and active…..this year we have come to Assisi….to stay together as brothers….to find one another to dialogue and be with each other….to share and celebrate…..to renew our sense of belonging ……there is Cardinal and many Archbishop and Bishop…from India we don’t have any Bishops….

The Bishops have a lot to share…..As Capuchin Bishops at the service of the Church…..
