To promote personal and community growth the Secretariat for Permanent Formation determines a subject for discussion each year (Cf. 2007 General Chapter, no. 37) and provides material for shared study in all parts of the Order. This year in collaboration with the Secretariat for the Evangelization of Peoples and Justice and Peace we are proposing this subject: To live the problems of justice and peace with Our Lady. The subject will be discussed in conventual chapters, in the special periods of the liturgical year (Advent and Lent) and during meetings and non-elective chapters in all jurisdictions of the Order. We are presenting a study aid that is informative, educational and proactive. It is divided into three sections. The first section includes general guidelines, some considerations of justice and peace, principles of the Church’s social teaching and a presentation of the encyclical Caritas in Veritate. The second section presents examples of Servite efforts in the area of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation. The third section outlines operative guidelines and essential requirements for the promotion of Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation.
