Q – For those long-time members who have displayed a reluctance in trying to learn the new Constitutions and cooperate during the Ongoing Formation class, what approach should be taken in order to encourage them to be involved and participate?
A – These are years of transition between the old Rule of Life and our 2003 Constitutions. Keep emphasizing to long-time members the importance of docility, teachability, and growth at every stage of the spiritual life. The Pharisees thought they knew it all and did not need to change. We too can unconsciously slip into that way of thinking.
