The Base

Every person, but also every family, every community and every enterprise, in order to prosper appropriately, needs first of all a good, solid, stable and above all enduring foundation that supports us and on which we can build. The more solid our foundation is, the more joyful and fruitful our living, learning and working together will be, in whatever context we find ourselves. We consciously build our life and our foundation on Jesus Christ, our rock. This foundation reveals itself in practice in seven different basic elements.

Personal basis

Community basis

Economic basis

Legal basis

Physical basis

Societal basis

Spiritual basis

“Human beings need stability in God.” The relationship with God is probably the most essential foundation a human being can lay. It is not a matter of belonging to churches, religions, gurus or the like, but, rather, a very personal matter between each person and God. The spiritual foundation is the most fundamental foundation for human beings. From him, in turn, all other foundations have their origin. “Two faiths can lift a human being, faith in God…

personal basis

…and faith in yourself. And both faith must be given” – freely according to Maria Montessori. Because: “Humans need hold, in themselves”. Creation needs role models who are capable of relationships and virtuous, who work on themselves in self-responsibility and full of self-confidence, who work on themselves powerfully and self-confidently, and who go forward and serve in the spirit and following of Jesus Christ.

Economic basis

We want to live in fullness. We shall want for nothing. We want to live and encourage natural, healthy growth, a spiritually-interiorly attitude and sustainable economic activity, which provides us and gives us room for manoeuvre, for ourselves and for all living beings who are considered to be us.

Physical basis

We create physical and living places and spaces where people of all generations and strata come together to learn, work, live, pray and be together, where theory can become practice, where divine spirit manifests itself.

Community basis

A human rarely comes alone. Together we are strong. When human diversity and the ability to relate work well together, versatile unity is created. This releases potential for potency, which we can channel and use creatively.

Legal basis

“Give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and give unto God what is God’s.” To participate in social life with all joy and liveliness, to honour and respect the rules and framework of our culture and to make change possible by actively setting an example is our way. In the end, we are exclusively responsible to God.

Societal basis

As a part, in cooperation and exchange, and in harmony with society and creation, we want to serve the common good and symbiotically enrich, inspire and build up ourselves and all other people and organisations involved in social life, as well as stand up for public and legal structures that enable our lives legally and properly.
