« Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God. Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love. » (1 Jn 4, 7-8).
To live fraternal charity as a community is a great challenge. And this is probably the reason why the Church’s tradition takes monastic life as “the school of love”. It forces us to go further, to head offshore. With the grace of God, the core of the matter is loving each other, getting along well and putting into practice the new commandment:
« Love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. » (Jn 13, 34).
