Community June 1
. . . the community of the Brethren of the Holy Cross, itself a part of the great community of the Church (Const. 0.1).
As a “cell” of the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church of Christ, the Brethren of the Holy Cross (Crosiers), by their profession according to the Constitutions, are:
… one assembly of different personalities and origins who are, among themselves, in search of unity in the crucified and risen Christ and who, by their witness, inspire the participation of others;
… a holy sacrament of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, gentleness and self-control, which come from the Spirit of Christ and give rebirth to the world;
… a catholic family with its arms around the world that overcomes barriers of human prejudice and builds bridges among peoples and nations;
... an apostolic prophet that announces the Good news and confronts beliefs, politics, economy, science and history with the Word of God.
As the tree, so the fruits. (Luba)
