A call to be a Brother is a vocation to be living, human memory of Jesus. The different vocations in the Church remind us that; There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same spirit; there are different forms of service but the same spirit; there are different workings but the same God who produces all of them in everyone. (1 Cor 12:4-6) All vocations are gifts from God, which are to be put at the service of the whole humanity. The Vocation to Brotherhood is a specific gift to the Church. It reminds all of us of the common dignity and fundamental Brotherhood of Christians; “You are all Brothers” (Math 23:8).
