Hi everybody,
We met a Sunday and discussed about what we are doing together. I´m very happy about our different meetings, so good athmosphere, often interesting talk, strong prayers (like last time Taizé), people engaged, taking initiatives and helping with things.
And I think that when such things happen, we shouldn´t forget to give thanks to the Lord, who brings us together, from all over the world and makes us one body in Him. Give thanks- because our efforts are not enough to create good things. We can prepare, stay open to possibilities, but at the end the Spirit blows where it wants, and we can´t decide the fruit of our actions. So let´s give thanks for all good fruits and for life itself! And pray for good times to come.
We talked when meeting of having prayer evenings and adoration of the Sacrement more frequently, like from early evening to nighttime, where people could pass by, and also do other things in our room next to the chapel. And we talked about a retreat in May at the monastery of the Dominican sisters outside Lund We´ll come back to this.
If you have more ideas of things to to together – if could be anything – take it up and talk to others – talking does make things happen.
So, hope to see you soon, yours, brother Björn

the Sacrement of Hospitality…

In the centre of the life of Jesus: the hospitality. Father Paolo, meeting with us at Sandgatan this Tuesday in January talked about the Sacrement of Hospitality. This is the practice of his community, Deir Mar Moussa in Syria: “We receive our families in a very special way, we receive friends in a very special ways, we receive the poor, the rich , the stranger, the ennemy in a very special way.” – Because practising hospitality is living the love of God and opens up and contributes to the kingdom of God, the future, the unknown unity. In the despice of the other, who is different from ourselves, like the Moslems in Europe today, their is a great risk, that of a genocide. Europe has experienced that before, not so long a go , with an other people… No, let´s practice hospitality, we had a very intereresting meeting with Father Paolo this evening, hopefully this leadss to many reflections and actions,  yours brother Björn
