The 25th International Ecumenical Conference on Orthodox Spirituality, organized in collaboration with the Orthodox Churches (Bose, 6–9 September 2017) wishes to examine more closely an essential dimension of Christian life: xenitia, the consciousness of being strangers and temporary residents on earth (cf. Heb 11,13), which leads to welcoming the other as a gift of God, to philoxenia (cf. Heb 13,2).

As you already know, on 26 January the brothers and sisters of Bose, after having received the resignation of the prior and founder of our community, br Enzo Bianchi, who for a long time has been preparing us for this moment, assembled for the annual general council to proceed to elect a new prior. Their choice fell on me, and I freely, but with great fear and trembling, accepted the charge.
