Brothers and friends

We do not aim at helping through organized institutions such as schools and hospitals, essential as these are, but we wish to live at a ‘grass—roots’ level, sharing in the lives of ordinary people, in their joys and sorrows. This means for us always trying to live and to relate as “brothers”, and so to see and appreciate the ‘other’ as a brother or sister. It means trying to be genuine “friends”, and so being actively concerned for one’s neighbour as for oneself. It means seeing each person as a “child of God”, of the one God and Father, and being deeply concerned for their personal and social life and destiny. It means, essentially, trying to be a ‘presence’ of Jesus, sharing in his ‘work’ of redemption.
