A vital commitment

Sharing our agreement and our life

makes us completely free

to love everyone

with undivided heart, like Jesus.

In our community,

we try to never be completely dependent

on the others mood,

but only on the love of God.

Any other dependence

limits us and makes us sad,

while freedom of heart makes our life happier

and motivates us to freely help whoever is in need.

We only depend on the love of God,

because He teaches us to love


without expecting anything in return,

but the joy of making someone else happy.

Sadness and fear

afflict also many people

who decide to share their lives.

Saying “yes” to God

just once

and then turning back is not enough.

Embracing love is necessary,

because it flourishes every day.

Our commitment is real only when it gives life,

like a new and continuous creation.

It is complete when it goes beyond its own limits

and helps us giving a new meaning to our life.

Our commitment challenges us every day,

so that pride does not harden us

and arrogance

does not take over.

I hope everyone commits to understand

if they are doing good

or spreading fear.

If we ask God understanding,


will become able to understand.

When we cultivate goodwill, we change,

because Jesus

gave us this certainty.

Our commitment is real when it pushes others to commit too,

when it turns into something good

for those who surround us.

Our commitment is real when it contributes to spread hope and joy,

but we should be serious enough,

strict and ironic enough

to understand what it is for.

Commitment is real when we say “Here I am”, like Mary did.

Always, in every moment,

this commitment unites us

to the love of God and puts us at the service of others.


«In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favoured! The Lord is with you.” Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favour with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” “How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God. Even Elizabeth your relative is going to have a child in her old age, and she who was said to be unable to conceive is in her sixth month. For no word from God will ever fail.” “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.”» (Luke 1, 26-38)
