OUR InstITUTE IN THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD
Our vocation demands that we become intimately united with God our Father, linked with humankind and its history, with its joys and hopes, grief and anxieties (GS1). “The world calls for and expects from us simplicity of life, the spirit of prayer, charity towards all, especially towards the lowly and the poor, obedience and humility, detachment and self-sacrifice. Without this mark of holiness, our words will have difficulty in touching the hearts of modern men and women” (EN 76). For an effective apostolic commitment, we remain open to the cultural values of the people we serve (C 5).
