As children of God, living in a Catholic community of faith, we are united by the Gospel message of Jesus Christ. Aware that all we have is gift and grace from our Heavenly Father, we strive to give of our time, talent and treasure to build His kingdom on earth. One way to do this is to join a Loquate (pronounced “low- qwate” meaning “Speak!” in Latin) Work Meets Faith Smart® group. (Call Susan Davis 310-251-0222.) Loquate is community. Only community is peace, happiness and joy.

What is Loquate for Individuals?
Loquate for Individuals is the Smart® group that empowers you to deliver community as a community ambassador. Only community brings peace, happiness, and joy.
What is the Loquate Smart® group?
Smart® groups build community in the fields of togetherness and betterment, providing gatherings to develop and enhance the spiritual lives of individuals. Scientific Momentum Activates Righteous Transformation through Natural Law. The science states innate needs are satisfied by primary values. The innate needs of humankind may be the greatest discovery in Natural Law ever. Everyone has innate needs. The innate needs are cited in hundreds of thousands of Academic Research articles since 1981 based on the work of Deci and Ryan who state:
“The findings have led to the postulate of three innate psychological needs–competence, autonomy, and relatedness-which when satisfied yield enhanced self-motivation and mental health and when thwarted lead to diminished motivation and well-being.”
Ryan sees “Amazing Convergence” with Loquate’s primary values which become Smart® habits that satisfy innate needs. Like sailors eating limes to prevent scurvy, Smart® habits overcome the scurvy of the human spirit which is diminished motivation and well-being. Interfaith small group members build community in every group of which they are a part, and individually tend toward happiness or joy.
What are the benefits of joining a Loquate Smart® group?
Our Smart® groups reinforce habits that satisfy innate needs and build community. The words “That which you value the most for the common good,” Spirit, and God are used interchangeably in our resources. The highest form of community is Spirit-centered community.
Smart® group feedback scores confirm a high degree of satisfaction when fulfilling innate needs that deliver Spirit-centered community becomes the norm. Scientifically Smart® habits build community.
