Show Notes

Geraldine Creaton joins us on our programme this week to share her experience of becoming involved with the Emmanuel Community, a community founded in France in 1972 by Pierre Goursat  and Martine Lafitte-Catta.  

Geraldine tells of her making a visit to Paray Le Monial and experiencing a Jesus talking to her and leading her to a new life with him. This was the start of her journey with the Emmanuel Community as she went on to spend a year at the Community’s School of Mission. Now Geraldine is part of a community numbering 10,000 throughout the world with a further associate 30,000 members.  

The mission of the Community is to reveal to every man and woman the presence of the God of Love in our lives, Jesus Christ, who is "Emmanuel," "God With Us," and wants to be close to us.

The Community consists of members with different states of life (families, singles, priests and celibate brothers and sisters) having the most different professions and trying to live a fraternal life in the world. It sees its aim as to respond to God's call to holiness addressed to each person, mainly through intense personal prayer, Eucharistic adoration, compassion for the spiritually and materially poor and evangelisation. Members are helped to grow spiritually in various ways: "household meetings" (small groups of members, meeting regularly for prayer and reflection on God's action in their lives), "spiritual companionship" (personal meeting with a more experienced member), monthly meetings of all the members in a country or region.
