A Family is People Who
grow together in faith, work together in hope
worship together in love, bear one another's sorrow
forgive one another's faults, share one another's joy
need one another, love one another
support one another, look for God in one another
see God in everyone, live as individuals
are separate yet one, are joined by God's presence
living in each other.

Miscellaneous

 FRANCISCANS INTERNATIONAL (A non-governmental organization at the United Nations):
Decide to Network
Use every letter you write
Every conversation you have
Every meeting you attend
To express your fundamental beliefs and dreams
Affirm to others the vision of the world you want
Network through thought
Network through action
Network through the spirit
You are the center of a network
You are the center of the world
You are a free, immensely powerful source of life and  goodness. Affirm it, Spread it, Radiate it. Think day and night about it and you will see a miracle happen: the greatness of your own life. In a world of big powers, media, and monopolies. But of four and a half billion individuals, networking is the new freedom, the new democracy, and a new form of happiness. (Robert Muller, former UN Assistant Secretary General, President, University of Peace, Costa Rica)

FORMATION

TASK: to encourage spiritual growth through Formation and to have a uniform plan for Formation at
