Many of us experience our social world today as a very difficult place in which to live and grow as a human person. Petty ambitions and rivalries, violence and lack of concern for one another undermines community. Consumerism and the pressures from social media further erode the quality of living.
Christian Brothers espouse brotherhood, a particular way of living together in community that values sharing, equality and intimacy. At the heart of a Christian Brother’s community is the presence of Jesus, the healer and brother to all.
Brothers in community share their daily lives, their dreams and their fragility as human beings.
The call to live an intimate life in community lies at the heart of the Christian Brother way of being in the world.
