Hoofdstuk 10. Indonesiƫ Generale Delegatie 2002 - 2005 359
One of the early Secretaries General of the United Nations, Dag Hammarskjold, once wrote: "For all that has been, thanks! For all that will be, yes!" I think these words are appropriate for us this evening. Thanks be to God for everything over the past 60 years; Yes, in faith and in hope, for all that will be in the next 60 years. Thanksgiving and openness to God filled the heart of Mary our Mother. May she walk with us every step of the road ahead."
De indrukwekkende viering werd afgesloten met de ondertekening van het volgende decreet:
"The Provincial Chapter of the Netherlands, and the Provincial Council, has requested that the Dutch Provincial Delegation of Indonesia become a General Delegation for the sake of the future life and mission of the confreres there.
The Extraordinary General Council of October 2000 gave its favourable opinion.
Thus, in accord with number 170 of the Constitutions of the Missionaries of the Company of Mary, the General Council modifies the status of the Provincial Delegation of Indonesia to that of a General Delegation.
The effective date for this change shall be June 2, 2002.
In order to facilitate stability and continuity in the Delegation during this time of transition, the General Council has decided to extend the mandate of the current Superior Delegate, Fr. Piet Derckx, and his Council until the end of 2003.
Bandung June 2, 2002
Charles Voncken, SMM William Considine, SMM Piet Derckx, SMM Sup. Dutch Province General Sup. Sup.Delegate Indonesia"
Niet alle confraters konden bij de overdracht in Bandung aanwezig zijn, de achtergeblevenen probeerden op hun manier iets speciaals te doen. In Putussibau vierden de confraters het heuglijke feit met de inzegening van de grot "Maria zetel der Wijsheid" en de kruiswegstaties in de tuin van het montfortaanse klooster "Deo Soli". In aanwezigheid van veel mensen zei pater Jozef Jehara te hopen dat het ingezegende heiligdom zou meewerken aan geloofsverdieping en dat het een middel zou worden via Maria te komen tot Jezus.
