What is the General Chapter theme?

The theme chosen for the 2013 General Chapter and reflectied in the logo above is:

"Salt for the Earth, Light for the World". (Matthew 5:13-14)

This theme invites us to consider "salt" and "light"; "earth" and "world" in many contexts, for example, how we can be salt for our earth today, the earth in which God dwells already, an earth that is often taken for granted?

Light for the world calls us to share what God has given us so that God's light will shine through us and throughout the cosmos. Jesus's call to discipleship has its own particular context in our time. His cry "I thirst", which meant so much to Marie Madeleine, is heard in a particular way in every age.
