In Thanksgiving and Love

This evening some of us viewed a video of the Nigerian “Catholic Voices” singing “In Thanksgiving and Love.” (A few years ago Br. Vitus, from Awhum in Nigeria, helped a New Melleray schola sing this same song at the celebration of Br. Nicholas’ solemn profession.) After watching the video we discussed what these joyful faith-filled Catholics might teach us with regards to the “New Evangelization.”


from Ratio Institutionis – The Community as Formative

13.  Communal discussions and dialogues, forms of Gospel sharing and fraternal correction, can be important means in the formation of the community.  In these and other ways, members of the community are trained to listen to others, exposed to different viewpoints and encouraged to develop skills of self-expression.
