Day by Day in Community

A community which is just an explosion of heroism is not a true community. True community implies a way of life, a way of living and seeing reality; it implies above all fidelity in the daily round. And this is made up of simple things - getting meals, using and washing the dishes and using them again, going to meetings - as well as gift, joy and celebration; and it is made up of forgiving seventy times seventy-seven.
