The Brotherhood of Hope

Within our community,

you can find young people, married couples, families

and consecrated men and women,

living together

and sharing their gifts.

We are all different

regarding our age and life choices,

but we all completely dedicate

our lives to God,

faithfully following Jesus:

some of us as married people,

some as consecrated

and some others in priesthood.

And we commit to follow His example

in poverty, chastity and obedience.

We are all around the world,

with our hearts full of God.

We live thanks to our work,

respecting the vocation of everyone.

We all know that

nothing belongs to anyone

and everything is a gift to be shared,

and we are pleased of this.

We share the time of prayer,

of service and work,

of continuous learning,

and the commitment of never neglecting them.

We recognise the Word as our foundation

and the Church as our guide to live in this world.

We are not searching for power and privilege,

we are at the service of everyone in need, humbly,

knowing how to be last, as first.

We try to make every person we meet

come closer to God,

in every moment,

with a good behaviour,

modest and hidden.

We try to be humble and good,

simple and sincere.

We try to be like

bread that anyone can eat,

not exhibiting our faith,

but living it.

We accept with joy the gifts

that God gave us,

freely sharing them

where needed.

We call ourselves «friends»,

remembering the word of Jesus,

who said to his disciples:

«I no longer call you servants,

but friends».

 

«For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him.» (1Corinthians 1, 25-29).
