FORMATION VV: BASIC AND PHILOSOPHICAL/ theological ...
(STATUTE Ch. 6 - Formation)
6,1 All of the formation is a time of trial and discernment on the part of the candidate and of discernment on the part of the formators. Therefore, it involves a shared responsibility between candidate and formators. The central point of the formation is the candidate's vocational discernment and acquisition of an ever greater freedom, so as to be able to responsibly decide to answer the call of the Lord, wanting to do only His will. Likewise, the formators must only seek the will of God and not the Association's numerical increase.
6,2 Our foundational and permanent internal formation is fulfilled - in submission to the Church - in the spirit or conditions of life of the community in order to translate it into the practice of life. Furthermore, it will be accompanied by formators; without prejudice, however, to the fact that each member remains the person primarily responsible for their own formation.
