Our community life, centered in the Eucharist,
is strengthened by sharing our prayer, apostolic action, our joys and sorrows.
Bearing one another's burdens in a spirit of kindness will help all to be happy in the Lord.
It will create a climate of love,
forgiveness and peace in which each one can grow in spiritual maturity
and in which lasting friendship may come to life
Our communities throughout the world form one family in Christ.
We are all vital members of this one body, actively contributing to the service of the Church and the world.
"We are all united in one same thought and one same desire, that of making our Lord known and loved. "
M. Therese, Letter to M. Stephanie du Plessis, May 18, 1880
