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. Todo los seres humanos llevan consigo la imagen del Dios trino y no han sido creados para estar separados y asilados.” Todos nosotros, los seres humanos, estamos llamados a compartir en comunidades de diferentes índoles y todos hemos sido hechos a imagen y semejanza de Dios. Y Dios es comunidad: “El verdadero ser de Dios es comunidad: el Padre, el Hijo y el Espíritu son uno en el amor y el dar de sí mismos recíprocamente.”
