On 31 January 2023, brother Renato Lima de Oliveira, 16th President General International of the SSVP, published another Circular Letter in which he speaks of the importance of succession at the Council General and gives some advice to Vincentians.
Since 1841, it has been a tradition among the Presidents General to write an annual Circular Letter. In it, the President General speaks directly to the hearts of all the Vincentians of the world, presenting ideas and proposing reflections.
This year, the Circular Letter contains 17 pages, seven chapters and 70 references as footnotes. Brother Renato, who will be leaving his mission on September 9th, has given the text a farewell tone while at the same time sharing an accountability for his seven years in office.
