Loving Life Together
Consecrated persons are asked to be true experts of communion and to practice the spirituality of communion as “witnesses and architects of the plan for unity which is the crowning point of human history in God's design”.
St. John Paul II, On Consecrated Life VC#46
As brothers we are a family in the order of grace: praying, living and working side by side. Like all religious, brothers are “experts in communion,” called by Christ to make visible the Trinitarian mystery as a dynamic union of persons animated by love.
In our community every house is a home – a place where we share life freely and deeply. At home we know one another and are known in a way that eases the burdens of ministry and heals the disappointments of the day. We laugh a lot. Over dinner brothers spend time talking about the ways we’ve met the Lord in our service to him. In chapel we intercede together for the needs of the Church and the world. We pray especially for our own, watering the seeds of the Gospel we’ve planted in our work of evangelization. We cook our own food. We clean our own homes. We live simply so that our hearts are free for the primary work of total love.
There is no greater joy for a man than to be united with brothers in a great adventure. At the heart of our community life is this satisfaction. Together we are seeking Christ with all our hearts, and every aspect of daily living is a joyful offering to Him and to each other for the glory of God.
