A series of sectorial meetings between the Governor General, Ambassador Leonardo Visconti di Modrone, with European Lieutenancies and Magistral Delegations began with the Iberian group in Madrid, and continued with the Nordic countries in Stockholm, the Italophones in Assisi, the German-speakers in Vienna, and the French-speakers in Paris, was missing, in order to close the circle, a meeting with representatives of the Lieutenancies and Magistral Delegations of Central and Eastern European countries.
Thus an Investiture in the splendid Prague Cathedral, celebrated by the Cardinal Grand Master last Sunday, September 10, was the perfect pretext to convene representatives from that geographical area in the former capital of the Empire.
The meeting was held in the usual cordial and informal atmosphere in the setting of the ancient Strahov Monastery. Alongside the Governor General and Vice Governor, Jean Pierre de Glutz, was the host Magistral Delegate, Professor Tomas Parma. Also present were: Bela Jungbert for Hungary, Claude Grbesa for Croatia, Andrei Sznaider for Poland, accompanied by Chancellor Pavel Szopa, Nicholas Ehrer for Switzerland, and Stefan Ahrenstedt for Sweden.
The Governor General began by recalling the reason why he considered promoting the formula of sectorial meetings in Europe, after noting that the formal general meeting among all the European brethren was too "crowded" to allow a useful debate and a fruitful exchange of evaluations.
