After having listened attentively to the reports of these past days, on November 4 we have paused to listen to the Word of the Lord during a day of retreat. Br. Eric Bidot, Provincial Minister of France, introduced the day by commenting on the passage of Matthew 20:1-16: The Lord goes out every morning to seek me and to give me the opportunity to work in his vineyard. What trust he has in me! He joins me even to his own creativity! It is God himself who wants to work with my – our hands. Therefore it is necessary to unite to our activities the spirit of prayer that must animate them. Thanking the Lord for having given us the grace of working, we want to open ourselves to his grace working within us in the coming days of the PCO. Brothers, pray for us!
