In 2015, as we will celebrate the fortieth anniversary of Decree 4 (GC 32), it will be an ideal moment to contemplate serenely the changes we have seen. For this issue of Promotio (no. 115) we have asked some of the protagonists of these changes to tell us what this decree has meant for the life of the Society and to evaluate the situation in which we find ourselves today. This issue therefore seeks to make an initial assessment of this ongoing process, and we hope that it will be useful to all the provinces and conferences as they undertake their own reflection on this topic during the coming year. This issue will be released during this month of June. If you have not subscribed yet, click here.
