Last April 10, 2021 evening the Long Term Committed members of Fondacio Philippines had an impromptu meet up with the Long Term Committed Members of France who were then having their National Retreat. It had been a joyous, short but meaningful meet up to live communion between the two countries.
What is a "Long Term Committed Member"?
Long Term Committed Members of Fondacio are members of Fondacio who after several years of being committed to Fondacio (at least 7 years of membership) felt the call to commit themselves publicly for an indefinite period of time (which may be a lifetime commitment) to this cell of the Church, which is Fondacio.
This commitment means to follow Christ, to become more fully the Child of God one is meant to be, and to be witness of Christ through this particular family that is Fondacio.
There are three (3) dimensions of the commitment which Fondacio has translated in the perspective and spirituality of Fondacio, being a lay community:
Relationship to God (Obedience): Docility and fidelity to the Spirit
Human relationship (Chastity): Love and authentic relationship
Possession (Poverty): Sobriety of life, abandonment to God and Solidarity
