The Chapter delegates this evening pushed for a completion of the election for the General Council. It was almost as if the delegates were unwilling to carry this task over the weekend.
Consequently, on the second electoral ballot Fr. Pedro Lopez of the Madrid Province was elected. Thus, the General Council now has six members, four of them new to this task. They will begin to learn about moving to Rome, the responsibilities ahead, the languages to learn, and the efforts that will go into building a team around Fr. Brehl.
May God grant them courage, strength, wisdom, and zeal in their critical role of leadership within the Congregation.
Fr. Mark Miller, CSsR
