Do you belong to a Christian community? How do you practice loving each other? - Daily Bible Reflections May 17,2015

Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord
 
COMMUNITY LIFE
 
Striving to preserve the unity of the spirit through the bond of peace. – Ephesians 4:3
 
       Our Third Order secular religious group is highly communitarian in charism. We try to practice daily the communal lauds and vespers as much as possible.
       Our particular chapter is composed largely of senior citizens. Only a few are below 60 years old and the average age is somewhere between 65 to 75 years.
         With this age group — and strong personalities — our chapter at one point was a headache for the spiritual directors. Yet we have existed for more than 20 years because of God’s grace and because members continue to attend and pray together in spite of differences.
       What binds us together? Our father, St. Augustine, wrote, “The members of Christ are united among each other by the charity of unity, which at the same time unites them with their Head, who is Jesus Christ.” From our formation, we are taught that it is an act of love to keep our unity with each other. It is love that unites us. Unity, not uniformity, is the name of the game.Cristy Galang (cristy_cc@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Do you belong to a Christian community? How do you practice loving each other?
 
Lord Jesus, make us one as You and the Father are one. Only Your grace and Your Holy Spirit can do this in us, Lord, and we pray that You will be with us always. Amen.
 
St. Paschal Baylon, pray for us.
