I meet social need
1, the basic thought of the shammy nerd father were to get the cooperation of the believer to rebuild a confused church of France by a revolution. To that end, I recommended the participation to the faith community and decided to share faith of each person. That set a good example for people by practicing faith and was to assume it means to the church rebuilding. The basic activity of a shammy nerd father and the pupil built a community of the faith and was to invite people.
Two principles were in 2, the believer community. The first principle was "to have universality", and the second was "to distinguish a mark of time".
It means that it does not limit means and possibility of the Gospel propagation, and it does not remove it "to have universality". Both the time and the ability are because human material resources are limited.
It is what it distinguishes what kind of activity is expected at this place, this time "to distinguish a mark of time". The shammy nerd father expresses it as "meeting the mind of the times and the need".
How can 3, "the mark" distinguish?
It is "to notice the need of people placed in the area in the time" basically. The shammy nerd father did the current situation of the French society and Catholic Church after the revolution in one of eyes. And it was "the mark" for the shammy nerd father that built a faith community in French society as the first church formed a faith community based on the Gospel.
What kind of thing can you see when you apply 4, the above-mentioned principle to the modern society? The world is filled with difficult problem questions. A difference, justice of the poverty and wealth and peace, a race and the conflict of the religion, the counting up including the evil accompanied with the computerization do not have time. The Catholic Church takes these as a token of time and must work on the solution.
What is "the mark" for me? What is "the mark" for the older brother strike in Mali? How must I meet it?
