"The kingdom of heaven is like what happens when someone finds treasure hidden in a field and buries it again. A person like that is happy and goes and sells everything in order to buy that field
Every student of the Scriptures who becomes a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like someone who brings out new and old treasures from the storeroom."
(Matthew 13, 44.52)
Thank you, Father,
for the treasure of FRATERNITY.
Thank you for loving us brothers and sisters,
because our Lasallian history is woven
together and by association.
Thank you because we need to meet periodically
to read the signs of the times together,
to hear your whispers.
We ask you for the courage
to dare to create community,
beyond the known forms,
where your Spirit will lead us,
where the mission guides us...
