MEDITATING AND LIVING
We build the wall of fraternal communion with stones of different shapes. Some are round like full moons. Others have sharp edges. A few appear to have been cut with a plumb line or to have perfect geometrical shapes. There are also shapeless ones.
Each stone has its story. The round ones come from rivers in which they were worn smooth by many years of jostling about in the midst of boisterous currents. vineis were boulders that bounded down mountain slopes. Some were intentionally quarried.
Addressed, above all, to religious who live in community. It is also written for all those Christians that in different ways are integrated into community groups: Faith Base Communities, youth groups, gatherings of lay people…The ideas that are expressed can also be applied to the marriage world, the first human community, and in general to the household. It highlights the themes starting with loneliness, aloneness and solidarity; it continues with the mystery of fraternity; the conditions needed for loving; the sense of self-sacrificing love, and love as the core of interpersonal relationship.
