A change of date?

On 7 October 1960, Cardijn wrote to Mgr Glorieux to ask if it would be possible to delay the first plenary meeting of the Preparatory Commission on Lay Apostolate for a few days.

He wrote:

“You indicated that there may be a meeting of the Pontifical Commission around 15 November. We have our International Executive Committee in Amsterdam from November 1 to 15, and I have accepted to speak in Luxembourg on 17 November.

“As I would like to attend the first meeting of the Commission in Rome, is there no way to fix a date beginning on the 18 or the 19?

“I would really appreciate it if this is still possible. If the date is already fixed I will cancel some of the engagements that I have already made here in order to be with you in Rome.”
