Identity and mission of a religious brother “Being truly human, that is how we see the mission of our lives.”

Identity and mission of a religious brother

“Being truly human, that is how we see

 the mission of our lives.”

 

1. Opening song:

On this house your blessing Lord, on this house your grace bestow

On this house your blessing Lord, may it come and never go.

Bringing peace and joy and happiness, 

bringing love that knows no end.

On this house your blessing, Lord on this house your blessing send.

 

On this house, your loving Lord, may it overflows each day

On this house your loving Lord, may it come and with us stay.

Drawing us in love and unity, by the love received from you

On this house your loving Lord, May it come each day a new.

 

On this house your giving Lord, may it turn and ever flow.

On this house your giving Lord on this house your wealth bestow

Filling all our hopes and wishes Lord, in the way you know is best

On this house your giving Lord, may it come and with us rest.

 

2. Introduction. 

Why is identity important? There are many answers. Such as:

 

1. Having a sense of identity is important because it allows people to stand out as individuals, develop a sense of well-being and importance, and fit in with certain groups and cultures. 

 

2.  Beyond the basic need for lower levels in which understood of  a sense of control, we are deeply driven by our sense of identity, of who we are.

 

3. Archbishop José Rodríguez Carballo, OFM, secretary of the congregation said the document is meant to highlight “the richness and necessity of all the vocations in the Church specially the vocation of religious life for men and women.”

“We recognise that the vocation of Religious Brother is not always well understood and appreciated within the Church. This reflection aspires to contribute to the appreciation of the richness of the different vocations, specially within male consecrated life and seeks to shed light on the identity of the Religious Brother and the value and necessity of this vocation. #1, par. 6-7
