Our fraternal life is the result of that choice that Jesus made in choosing for himself a community in which he could live the joys and anguish of the proclamation of the Kingdom (cf. Mk 3, 13-14). Christ shares his life in order to share his mission.
The community of disciples where everybody lived together and had everything in common (Acts 2, 42-47), is for us the perfect example to follow. The Magna Carta, which must be insistently sought and which is the heart of the Gospel, is that of Love: "I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so also ye ought to love one another. " (Jn 13, 34).
Only the intense and true experience of this commandment will be able to make our consecration and our apostolate credible: "By this, all will know that you are my disciples: if you love one another" (Jn 13,35).
We know that the holiness of a community is the fruit of the holiness of its members. However, we are also convinced that holiness is a project that we build together. It is wonderful to find a saint in our midst, but it is even more wonderful to find a community of saints.
Finally, the community is the place where we become brothers of one another, brothers with outsiders and in particular brothers with the poor.
In the community we are invited to share not only our abilities and talents, but the very God who is in us. It is the place where we must share our faith, our prayer, our intercession, our conversion and our communion.
