Vita Consecrata expresses the heart and spirit of community life beautifully, calling it the place where the passage from 'me' to 'us' takes place. Communal living allows each of us to cease seeking 'my' things and 'my' works and begin living only for 'the things of Christ' the Divine Bridegroom. This orientation toward Christ and the common good is fostered by daily Adoration, communal prayer, and participation in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The spiritual singleness of mind and heart within the members of community is expressed first in acts of communal charity and then grows into a pervasive spirit of generous and joyful evangelization.
