Reviewing the Roadmap (2016 – 2019) formulated at the II Latin American and Caribbean Biblical Animation of all Pastoral Life (ABP) encounter, held in Quito, August 12–14, 2016, it is noted that there is still a lot of ground to be covered here in our country.
While some significant signposts have been reached, efforts to move forward have often been stymied by roadblocks encountered, of one kind or another. However, it is the desire of our local ABP team to pursue relentlessly the goals set out in the document mentioned above.
If as stated in Guidelines for Biblical Animation of all Pastoral Life (CELAM Document No. 198), “the basic objective of ABP is to ensure that the Word of God is the soul of pastoral ministry; the sap that nourishes the salvific vitality, the evangelizing activity of the church, then it must be at the heart of all ecclesial activity.”
