It is precisely the individuals we find difficult who can well be the agents of our conversion. Just like rocks pounded by the sea on the seashore slowly lose their rough edges and get smoothed ā€“ so living in community can mold us and form us and help us grow up in Christ. Perhaps above all, community life draws out of us compassion, forgiveness, and love for the other.

-Br. Geoffrey Tristram, SSJE
