Chioggia, 26 November 2016 The 5th Advent Training meeting organized by the Triveneto Delegation, mandatory for new Knights and Dames and strongly recommended for all others, was held in Chioggia (VE) in the Diocesan Episcopal Seminary and was attended by many members.
The Prior of the Delegation, Mons. Arnaldo Greco discussed the theme: “The teachings of charity in the Parable of the Good Samaritan, analysis of the words of charity in Luke 10, 29-37”, the inspiration for the works of charity performed by our Sacred Order and the basis for the guidelines traced by the Cardinal Grand Prior, Renato Raffaele Martino”. The decision to analyze the Parable of the Good Samaritan (Lk. 10,29-37)…) for this catechesis and fifth training meeting is encompassed within the context of the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, which ended a few days ago with the closing of the Holy Door in St. Peter’s on Sunday, November 20, 2016. Following the “reflections” all present were divided into two working groups and tasked with analyzing the topic and providing their observations.
Special focus was placed also on the inner and personal aspects of being a “Constantinian Knight” according to the principles of the Statute and the goals of the Order: Propagation of the Faith and Exaltation of the Cross. The 5th Advent Training Meeting of Chioggia concluded with a significant contribution for the social works of the Diocesan Episcopal Seminary for needy seminarians and students.
