But why take up the challenge? The key of the charisme of the community life is found in the mission that Jesus has entrusted to the disciples. The proclamation of the Kingdom is made two by two (Mt 10), and the best “motor” of the evangelization is the mutual love: “It is by your love for one another, that everyone will recognise you as my disciples.” (Jn 13, 35).
In this school and at the call of the Second Vatican Council, the Community of Saint Martin finds in the community life a place and a means of human development of the person, but also a testimony of the fraternal charity and of its members’ union with God. It is in this way that it becomes a force in order to perform the ministry and a support for the missionary momentum.
