Group egoism and clan thinking – against those we want to put friendship, a friendship which goes beyond these borders and towards those who live different from ourselves. It is the Christian mercy’s core that I can learn something from anyone else, also if that someone does not possess special skills or positions in society. This learning I achieve through appreciation and love, by giving my time and myself.
Some of us go out every week for about an hour and bring tea to those living on Lund’s streets. It has mostly become beggars from Romania we meet and spend time with.

“The Gospel offers us the chance to live life on a higher plane, but with no less intensity: “Life grows by being given away, and it weakens in isolation and comfort. Indeed, those who enjoy life most are those who leave security on the shore and become excited by the mission of communicating life to others.” – Pope Francis in The Joy of the Gospel
