  1. Thanks for the fine summary presentation, Ed. It was wonderfully inviting and inspiring of continuing to share our mission and charism of presence and help to others in whatever ways are available to us. God’s Spirit, and Jesus’ good news are clearly alive and well among us, and our leadership continues to promote Ryken’s vision in life-giving directions! I was heartened to listen to the message in French as well. Great job!

  2. Merci beaucoup Frere Edward. A bilingual General Superior! Proficiat to Brothers Sylveer and Gerard. March on – God WILL provide. Ora pro nobis. Au revoir – a bientot!

  3. Thanks to all the Council members for allowing us to witness and share in your activities.
    Peace and Merry Christmas.
