In 2015, Brother Alois wrote a special message on the occasion of the "Gathering for a New Solidarity". It contains an invitation to find ways of opening up new ways of living in solidarity. Brother Alois also encourages us to allow ourselves to be inspired by three Gospel values that Brother Roger placed at the heart of the life of the community he founded, and which are accessible to all: joy - simplicity - mercy.
We will take these three values as the basis for journey together over the next three years 2016-2018. By beginning with mercy during the year 2016, we would like to rediscover God’s goodness and kindness, and with it human goodness and kindness.

The themes for the 2016 meetings will be drawn from these texts. Each day we shall look at a bible text, from the old or new testament, linked with Brother Alois’ proposals.
