Community July 12
(The Crosier) accepts community life as his dearest and most immediate apostolate (Profile of the Congolese Crosier).
Lord, it is enough for me to remain with my brothers, witnessing to the salvation offered by the Cross of Christ to the world.
It suffices for me to participate in the community project, to give example of a human life of integrity in our times.
Is there something other than this to do, another mission to realize, a more urgent work to accomplish?
I am content to participate in a sharing community in a world ravaged by greed, in a family of chaste love in the midst of unbridled eroticism, in a brotherhood of listening to the Spirit in the face of the abuse of human power.
It is more than enough to celebrate the mysteries of Christ before the eyes of a world liberated from God, to live well with my confreres before the peoples of the nations inflamed by hatred and to leave the monastery to be in solidarity with those who suffer in a society without compassion.
Thank you, Lord, for having called me to Crosier community life.
Take on only one task; thus its weight will suit you. (Luba)
