Not only were the youth to work for their own personal growth and salvation, but through the quality of their lives they were to be like yeast in the “dough” of the world so as to be a source of transformation and growth for others:

Art. 3. The congregationists, whose state of life ensures that they live fully in the world, will seek to behave in such a way as to edify all those with whom they have family ties and others with whom they have contact.

Statuts, Chapitre XII §1

 “Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.” Philippians 2:15

  1. Eleanor Rabnett, Oblate Associate says:

    I am reminded a bit of that hymn we used to sing about “and they’ll know we are Christians by our love ….”. I believe in “setting an example” and so how I live will somehow be like a light to those who see me. I like the idea though of “being yeast in the dough of the world”. Thank you.
