As a Dominican for more than thirty years, I am still and always convinced of the need for a word that brings meaning and breath to a humanity committed to taking up important challenges for its very survival.
I entered the Order because I felt within me a call to be a witness of hope. How can we move forward, how can we dare to make commitments without hope? For us believers, this hope is not without foundation and, as the Apostle Peter says in his letter, we must give an account of it (1 Pt 3:15-16).
The College must make its word of hope heard. And it can do so, even in a society where everything changes rapidly, because it is part of a long and rich spiritual and intellectual tradition characterized by the search for truth, rigor and freedom in its reflection, as well as great sensitivity to cultural and social contexts.
In taking over the presidency of the Board of Directors of the Foundation, after having been Prior Provincial for eight years and responsible for the finances of the Province, and being presently the Prior of Saint-Albert-le-Grand Convent, I have the impression that I am returning to my ideals of the early days.
I thank you in advance for your support.
