Meeting of the General Commission for Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation

74/2018 – 30 – 10

The General Commission for Justice, Peace and Integrity of creation held its annual meeting from 17-22 October 2018. All Commission members – Frs Mark Zittle, O.Carm (SEL), Hariawan Adji, O.Carm (Indo), Eduardo Agosta Scarel, O.Carm (ACV); Mrs Esther Martin Lozano (Karit, Spain); Sr Annah Theresa Nyadombo, HLMC; Sr Jane Remson, COLMC and Conrad Mutizamhepo, O.Carm. (General Councillor and Praeses) – were in attendance. During the introductory session the Commission evaluated the July 2017 Carmelite Family JPIC Congress that was held at Casa Sao Nuno, Fatima, Portugal.

The bulk of the time was set aside for discussing and writing the proposed Carmelite Family Handbook for JPIC workers. The handbook on JPIC aims at providing the history of JPIC in the Church and in the Carmelite tradition, spell out Carmelite spirituality on JPIC and offer coordinators opportunities for communication and exchange of information.

The Commission acknowledges that JPIC work is ongoing throughout the Carmelite Family without necessarily using the name JPIC, and so encourages all Carmelites to deepen their prayer, fraternity and service in the midst of the people.

As Carmelites We live our life of allegiance to Jesus Christ and to serve Him faithfully with a pure heart and a clear conscience through a commitment to seek the face of the living God (the contemplative dimension of life), through prayer, through fraternity, and through service (diakonia). These three fundamental elements of the charism are not distinct and unrelated values, but closely interwoven. 

All of these we live under the protection, inspiration and guidance of Mary, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, whom we honor as "our Mother and sister."
