  1. When I click on links on this page with documents, I always return to the same page and cannot access the documents. There must be an error somewhere.

    Thanks for all the work you do,


    1. Dear Jacques,

      The documents are in pdf, you should be able to download the documents when you click the link after the document title. The links are those in parenthesis. For example, “Letter to Provincials and Moderators (EN, FR)”, you click on the text “EN” or “FR”.

      Hope that helps.

  2. @Francis,

    Click the blue link after the document title to download the pdf. Unfortunately, the “Spiritual Exercises and ecology” is only available in English (EN).
