By Geoffrey Tristram, Sociedad de San Juan Evangelista
En el cuarto capítulo de la Regla de la Sociedad de San Juan Evangelista expresamos cómo y por qué entendemos que todos los seres humanos estamos llamados a vivir juntos en comunidad: “En comunidad somos testigos de la naturaleza social de la vida humana como lo quiso nuestro Creador.
