The Superior General spent 5 weeks in Poland, visiting all Dehonian communities. The Polish province expresses gratitude for this important event.
Unavoidably it was time to say goodbye and the five-week stay of General Father Carlos Luis Suárez Codorniú SCJ ended. He was in Poland from 10 October, visiting each of the dehonians communities, sharing a good word with his brothers, parishioners, associates and friends of the Congregation.
Father General began his visit at the provincial house in Warsaw, from where he went to the other places where priests and dehoians brothers have been present. He visited all monasteries, parishes, chaplaincies and works all over the country.
He participated in a two-day event in connection with the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the establishment of the Polish Province of the Priests of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and in the annual pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Blessed Motherhood in Kraków – Płaszów.
On October 18, the feast of St. Luke Evangelist, after a joint celebration in the chapel of the provincial house in Warsaw, there was a meeting of General Father Carlos Luis Suárez Codorniú SCJ with the provincial, Fr. Sławomir Knopik SCJ and his council to summarize the time of the canonical visit to the province and its dependent administrative entities.
Just before his departure for Rome, Fr Carlos expressed his gratitude to God and to the people he met for all the experiences of the visit that has ended. In a fraternal spirit, the provincial thanked Fr. General and General Councillor Fr. Artur Sanecki SCJ for a special time of presence among us, for every manifestation of love for God’s Heart, care for the spiritual and material well being of the entire Congregation, which is the legacy of our Founder Reverend Father Leon John Dehon.
