Our spirituality finds its source in Jesus. We recognize him as Son of God and especially as: (Art. 5)
√ PASTOR who gathers his people into the great family of God’s children.
√ PROPHET who preaches God’s Kingdom and denounces personal and social sin.
√ PRIEST who reconciles the world to the Father and sanctifies the Church.
It is centered on the EUCHARIST, the PRIESTHOOD and the WORD OF GOD.
√ Our models and patrons are the Apostles and the Virgin Mary. (Art. 6).
√ Moved by this spirit, we strive to fulfill our mission according to our Constitutions, in great fidelity to the Church and with filial affection for the Pope. (Art. 7)
√ Our motto“UNITED IN THE LORD JESUS” expresses our desire to testify that all human beings are called to be children of the same Father and to love one another as brothers and sisters. (Art. 8)
