Members of the XX General Chapter

The chapter participants are made up of four groups:

1. Members of the chapter ex-officio
2. Members of the chapter elected by units
3. Peritus
4. Staff

Only the first two groups are members of the chapter.

According to the Constitutions the general chapter is composed of members ex-officio and elected delegates. The ex-officio members, who are: the superior general and the general consultors; the immediately preceding superior general; the general treasurer; the secretary general and the mission secretary if they are not general consultors; provincial and pro-provincial superiors or their vicars, if the superiors are unable to attend for grave reasons; and the superiors of vicariates with more than twenty members in perpetual vows.

The delegates are elected by the provinces, pro-provinces, and vicariates. In the same way are elected their substitutes that become members if the delegates are impeded from attending for grave reasons.

Delegates must be perpetually professed.

The number of elected delegates is always more than the number of ex-officio members.

Founder's Thoughts

As long as there is one person on earth who does not know God and does not love God above all things, you dare not allow yourself a moment’s rest.
