Americans never did it by themselves! Look at our new immigrants; if they don't have compatriots here to help them they hardly survive! The Amish build together; once we help our neighbors how could we not be grateful to each other? St. Paul said all believers are having their individual gifts part of one body.

One of the beautiful experiences we have had with community was working a s co-workers for several years with the Missionaries of Charity in the So.Bronx and Harlem. The input by neighbors,co-workers, was extraordinary and rich with love! If we had any need there was always someone to provide it.We fed about 230 people a day. One of  co-workers, Uncle Barney who raised sheep brought one and there came a day that I was called to butcher a whole side of mutton.Not an easy task! Then I spiced it up and cooked it in the ovens and the hungry eaters loved it! When the head Provincial had it she scolded me for putting spice on it.
