As Fr. Giussani said: “We come to the Fraternity Exercises in order to revisit the things we always tell each other. Some of them become even more alive in the diversity of our speech. We meet all together because there is nothing, normally, that can help the emotion of the heart or the liveliness of perception of our mind, nothing capable of influence, like a tender, motherly, brotherly, friendly push on our will, more than our coming together.” (Fraternity Exercises, 1992)
Again, we would like to extend the invitation to participate in the Exercises to all those who met our charism over the past years and showed a desire to participate in our experience. The occasion of the Spiritual Exercises is also a privileged moment to recall the importance and the value of enrolling in the Fraternity. As many times Fr. Giussani has reminded us “adherence to the Fraternity is a personal act of total initiative of the person and not a choice made by a group. It arises as a personal necessity for one's own faith and for the fulfillment of one's own Christian physiognomy.”
During the Exercises there will be the possibility of enrolling in the Fraternity and paying toward the common fund.
We remind you that children are not allowed to participate and everybody is required to sleep at the location where the Exercises take place.
We remind you to bring the Song Book, Book of Hours (it will be also possible to buy them at the check in), and a note pad to take notes.
