Culture, communication and community are not separable from each other. In order to have proper relationships, culture plays a very important role as a means by which these relationships are expressed, but at the same time there must be adequate communication. Reflecting on the different ways in which the human being is understood is also very important. There is, as can be seen, an almost universal tendency to judge other cultures and communities based on someone's cultural predispositions. Thus, how to think, feel, communicate, and behave in a particular culture becomes good or bad, understandable or incomprehensible, acceptable or ridiculous, if they are in accordance with our "way of thinking, feeling," communicate and behave. In order to overcome many barriers and prejudices, it is especially important to know the relationship between culture and communication and the role they have within the ecclesial community. All this is outlined in a practical way in this article.
