Many forms of sharing life at the Communities-of-Light
Those who in their own cities join the principles of the Communities-of-Light. Thus, in their everyday life they aim at expressing fraternity and good through prayer, service and study. They follow rhythms at the Communities-of-Light, interacting and experimenting a selfless group life consecrated to the common good, taking these seeds to the places where they live.
Those who, touched by love and charity, work on a world scale, in rescue and in service. In this sense, they offer humanitarian assistance and help in situations of socio-environmental emergencies and of generalized public calamity, as well as in situations of risk and individual or collective vulnerability. The Missionary collaborators offer to act in missions of a temporary character and have at the Communities-of-Light the laboratory for their training and formation.
Those who, in response to an inner call, open a space in their lives to deepen the experience at the Communities-of-Light. Thus, they start living in these places for a longer period, though they still keep their links with their external life. During the period of residence, they assume, in primordial character, the patterns of consecrated life of the Community.
Those who, as a family nucleus, offer to live at the Community-of-Light, sharing a group life, constituting seeds of a new life over the Earth. The Residents-Family are willing to transform and elevate the patterns of human family life, aspiring to the patterns of the universal family, having as inspiration the Sacred Family: Jesus, Mary and Joseph.
Those who, individually, decide to dedicate their lives to the manifestation of the Communities-of-Light, building and sustaining the basis of fraternal group life, oriented to the common good and to spirituality. As laypersons, they consecrate themselves to the experience of sowing patterns of a human life that turns to the life of the spirit.
