Communicating the Gospel

The second "work" of the community, and its second pillar is communicating the Gospel. The Gospel itself is indeed the good news we can share with other people, the precious treasure, the light which cannot be hidden. The Gospel is not a possession: it is a responsibility for the members of the community to communicate the Good News to others. We are called to share it. In Sant'Egidio's experience being disciples and living and sharing the Gospel are synonymous. It is an experience of joy and celebration, as in the gospel according to Luke, when the 72 came back full of joy saying: "Lord", they said, "even the devils submit to us when we use your name" (Lk. 10: 17). It is the experience of each disciple and of each one in the Community of Sant'Egidio, which has led, during these years, to our living a "missionary brotherhood" in many parts of the world.
