Community Life

By its nature, the Church is a community of believers by their common baptism. Pope Paul VI made it clear that “God does not make men holy and save them merely as individuals, without bond or link between one another. Rather it pleased him to bring men together as one people” (Lumen Gentium 9). This togetherness of the Church members transcends all boundaries including friendships, family ties, ethnicity, racial, and social aspects. This is the life practiced in Religious Communities including the CDNK Sisters, in which members share their lives in love and fellowship among themselves and the society around them. The Community Life among the CDNK should mirror the Trinitarian life and focus on the mutual relationship among members and with the society in which they serve. “Love one another as I have loved you”

“Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,” and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore, I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours”
(Mk. 11:23-26).
“Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.”
Acts 2:46-47
”For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.”
Romans 12:4-5
”And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”
Colossians 3:14
