Christ crucified today
Our missionary life is based on the certainty that Christ has assumed the whole of humanity in his own Body. We find the face of each of our brothers and sisters reflected in the Face of Christ. We feel called to be companions of this crucified Christ of today who opens his Heart to us in his most suffering and needy members. It is He who lovingly carries us in his Body and receives all our acts of love, thanking us for them and making them fruitful beyond what we can see and imagine.
Love made flesh
In the light of the Mystery of the Incarnation, everything truly human has been elevated to a new dignity. We believe, therefore, that our humanity can be a sacrament of God’s love. We want to make the joys, sorrows, hopes and dreams of each person our own, in the places of the world where we are, just as Jesus did. This is how our words and gestures, our proximity and listening ear, can be God’s presence in their midst and a declaration of His love that our brothers and sisters can understand. When the center of our relationships is Christ, his love incarnated among us becomes the sacred place where God wants to continue revealing himself.
Mary our Mother, and Mother of the Church
Mary, Mother of all peoples and Mother of the Church, accompanies us along paths of simplicity and faith in our efforts to create bonds of communion with all our brothers and sisters. Our Mother teaches us to recognize the Spirit and to listen to God’s voice in his Word and in the reality which we live. Mary was the woman who brought the early church together and supplied the faith that the apostles were lacking while they waited for the Spirit.
