The Spirit of Vatican II
  • Be grounded in Gospel values
  • Return to the spirit of the Founder
  • Read the signs of the times

6
  • He went around all of Galilee,
  • teaching in their synagogues,
  • proclaiming the Gospel of the kingdom,
  • and curing every disease and illness
  • among the people.
  • (Mt
    423)

7
  • Jesus went up the mountain and
  • summoned those whom he wanted
  • and they came to him.
  • He appointed twelve to be with him
  • and to be sent out to proclaim the Gospel
  • and to have power to cast out demons.
  • (Mark
    313-15)

8
  • Go and do likewise.
  • (Lk 1037)

9
The Mission of the Sisters of St. Joseph(1650)
  • The union of ourselves and all people (and
    creation) with God and one another in and through
    Christ Jesus (C11)
  • To bring about this unity, we search out and
    undertake any spiritual and corporal work of
    mercy that may be within the power of the
    Congregation (C13)

10
17th Century Social Analysis
  • Divide the city,
  • Identify the ills there,
  • Work with others to alleviate them.

11
Mother Bernard--1912
  • (She) brought to our California foundation the
    Congregations heritage of profound humility and
    cordial charity in all relationships. To this
    heritage, she contributed a pioneer spirit of
    bold faith, foresight, and flexibility as gifts
    for our mission. (C10)

12
Mission of Holy Family Sisters
  • To seek out and advocate
  • for the poor and needy,
  • especially families,
  • for the Kingdom of God

13
SHF Vision Statementc 1990
  • As Gleaners, we stand at the edge of society
    where Christ is encountered in Word, Silence, and
    Action, where power of His Kingdom pushes out the
    boundaries of our world.

14
SHF Vision
  • We will be recognized by our simplicity of life
    and visible presence among the most abandoned.
    Our mission as Gleaners will be to serve segments
    of the population who are underserved by Church
    and social institutions.
  • Our coming together as a community will be
    typical of the gathering of disciples around
    Jesus. Thus, we are open to the power of the
    Spirit which unifies and empowers us with a
    passion for mission.

15
SHF Vision
  • The richness of our community life will be the
    result of our commitment to interact with one
    another and assume the responsibilities of active
    participation as we live our common faith and
    mission. This will be enhanced by our spirit of
    inclusiveness where individuals, drawn by the
    charism, freely choose levels of participation
    where they live out their commitment as vowed
    members or Associates.

16
SHF Vision
  • Our position in the world as Gleaners calls our
    congregation and institutions to a larger social
    agenda. Toward that end we will network and
    collaborate with other congregations,
    institutions, and others for the purpose of
    solidarity with, as well as advocacy for the
    poor impacting policy with Gospel values and
    promoting the values upon which we were
    originally established.

Canon Law

Meaning of PJP Today
  • Structures that include lay and religious

  • This structure transfers words from

Why Choose This Model?

    operations

Gerald Arbuckle, SM suggests
  • It is a prophetic action to identify and bridge
    the gap between mission of Jesus and contemporary
    realities
  • Primary task of Church governance is to maintain
    order and unity based on sound doctrine

74
  • Involves discernment of new pastoral initiatives
  • To be ministry of the Church requires Church
    approval and accountability
  • Never a neat formula for relationships between
    hierarchical and prophetic

75
  • Everyone involved needs passionate commitment to
    mission of Jesus Christ, courage, patience,
    openness to workings of Holy Spirit
  • Requires formation
  • Gerald A. Arbuckle, SM, Ph.D.

76
  • I will pour out a portion of my spirit
  • on all flesh.
  • Your young men and women
  • will see visions
  • your old men and women
  • will dream dreams.
  • (Luke 2
    17-18)
