CTC: Communion and Communication
The Bulletin of the Office for Nuns (Pro-Monialibus)
In January 1987, Fr. Dario Pili, then the Pro Monialibus Delegate, wanted to find a new format in which to publish the bulletin ‘Pro Monialibus‘. This had previously been edited by Fr. Omaechevarria in Latin but publication had been suspended from 1981-1985.
The initials “cTc” stand for communion and communication. They were intended as an invitation to collaboration and dialogue between Poor Clare Sisters in various parts of the world. Fr. Dario wished that the cTc could come “immediately from the hands of the nuns attached to the Pro Monialibus Office”.
The editorial team is formed by the OFM General Delegate of the Office of “Pro-Monialibus” and the Secretariat which is based in the Monastero Santa Chiara, Cortona (Arezzo, Italy) at present. Poor Clare Sisters and Friars Minor from all the continents collaborate with articles, reflections, news and translations.
