AMPJP Executive Officer’s report on October 2022

28 October 2022 by

October was fairly uneventful for AMPJP.

There was certainly an AMPJP event. The MPJP Stewards gathering in Melbourne on 20 October 2022 was much appreciated by all participants. You can read more about this in a separate post.

Other ongoing AMPJP projects continued to progress over October.


Patient Trust

Above all, trust in the slow work of God.
We are quite naturally impatient in everything to reach the end without delay.
We should like to skip the intermediate stages.
We are impatient of being on the way to something unknown, something new.

And yet it is the law of all progress
that it is made by passing through some stages of instability—
and that it may take a very long time.

And so I think it is with you;
your ideas mature gradually—let them grow,
let them shape themselves, without undue haste.
Don’t try to force them on,
as though you could be today what time
(that is to say, grace and circumstances acting on your own good will)
will make of you tomorrow.

Only God could say what this new spirit
gradually forming within you will be.
Give Our Lord the benefit of believing
that his hand is leading you,
and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself
in suspense and incomplete.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, SJ
