Every community, every where, have people living the kind of life you are describing. They choose to live a life that is devoted to Christ, shuns materialistic things and serves the community around them. Probably in your life you have known people like this. In most parishes there are groups of people you can join who devote themselves to helping others. SVP have volunteers who serve the poor in a variety of ways. If you are looking you will see a great need all around you for people like you want to be. God bless you Abbagail.
Really? Where are they? What are their names? I've moved overseas and around the USA, and I see a great lack of communities. When I bring up poverty and the Great Commission people look at me like I'm crazy or give me excuses...In parishes I see people saying one thing and living another. Where is the community of Acts? Where are the St. Pauls and St. Francis' of our day. I know very few people who take the Gospel seriously.

I don't have one, but I've been thinking about this. The problem is I move around quite a lot. :confused:
