During the past few months four new leadership teams have been appointed, each one following a time of reflection and discernment on the new ways of functioning that were suggested at the General Chapter 2013. An appropriate form of leadership for each individual situation emerged and each group have committed themselves to live it out in a spirit of collaboration with others during the next three years.

This wish, used during the Service of Light marking the new Leadership Team in Singapore, might be prayed for all the Leadership Teams of the Institute:
May the light of your soul bless your service
with love and warmth of heart.
May you see in what you do the beauty of your soul.
May the sacredness of your work bring light and renewal
to those who work with you and to those who see and receive your work.
May your work never exhaust you.
May it release wellsprings of refreshment,inspiration and excitement.
May the day never burden you.
May dawn find hope in your heart,
approaching your new day with dreams, possibilities and promises.
May evening find you gracious and fulfilled.
May you go into the night blessed,
sheltered and protected.
May your soul calm, console and renew you.
(after John O’Donohue)
