THE REASON OF OUR COMMUNITY...
The reason for this new community ( as be written in our Constitutions V.V.), is that : << Today all the world or many, many people have the need to concretely see, other than those really poor in spirit, also those really materially poor in the Church, because no longer understanding the Benign Mystery of it’s Glorious Richness, instead of esteeming it, they accuse it !, and not only !, they also accuse it unjustly – as all note, also the Ministers that represent it, and like this, many that listen to these non understood things, instead of becoming closer to the Church they go further ! And precisely to avoid this, also an Archbishop of Calabria said : “ Jesus invites us to go two by two “without bread, nor haversack, nor money…Do not ware two tunics” (ref Lk 9,3) The poverty is the measure of Faith because it reveals how much we depend on God or on our own securities. And this testimony of “spring beauty” that the people have need; to see, to hear and to touch with their hands what we have seen ( ref 1Jn 1,1 )” (Diocese of Cosenza-Bisignano Official Acts)
Therefore, precisely for this was immediately born for us the urgency to make ourselves truly poor ( besides for our Calling and for a factor of Justice ), so the confused people no longer having the possibility to point the finger at us, they stop, and finally “listen” to the demonstrated truth and the simple answer to why Jesus was poor while now the Church is ( rightly ) Rich, given that it is written: << Many.. selling land or house, and bringing the goods… to the feet of the Apostles, to be distributed to each person according to the need >> ( Act 4, 32 – 35 ), as also : << Majesty and beauty, are before Him, strength and splendour, in his sanctuary >> ( Ps 95,6 ) , and etc.. ; and like this in fact very many, understand also such, beginning to take up again the esteem for their Mother Church and for her Ministers, returning like this to the Holy Confession and to the Holy Communion, and therefore in effect: on the way towards the Blessed Eternal Life. Amen !
Then, to whom ever asked our initiator for the reason of having founded this new community and not for having entered into a community that be similar, given that already there were so many - like so our initiator has answered more than once with the textual words of St. Francis of Assisi, and that is:
<< Brothers, my brothers, God has called me to walk in the way of simplicity, and to me he has shown it. Therefore I don't want to nominate myself to other rules, neither that of St. Augustine, nor that of St. Bernard or St. Benedict. The Lord has revealed to me, it be his Will that I be crazy in the world… >> - F.S. 1673 - ( so to be able to live all the Gospel in simplicity with the facts and in the Truth ! ). Amen !
