Ars Moriendi Charismática - Facing Current Challenges
“ARS MORIENDI CHARISMATICA” -AUTOPOIETIC POWER OF CHARISM
INTELLIGENT LEADERSHIP FACING CURRENT CHALLENGES
José Cristo Rey García Paredes, CMF
This experience of accompanying different Congregations of Religious Life in times like this is beautiful for me; a time, in which many people wonder if this way of life has a future, and if religious consecration makes sense.
I would like to develop this topic in three parts:
• First part: Ars moriendi charismatica: Don’t be afraid of things to come, if we learn the art of charismatic dying;
• Second part: Autopoiesis: Don’t be afraid of things to come, if we believe in the power of rebirth
• Third part: Intelligent leadership: Don’t be afraid of things to come, when we are guided by wise and intelligent leaders.
I address all these issues mainly as a theologian but also guided by my experience with religious institutes and by my hope in this magnificent way of Christian living which is the consecrated life.
