Life of Prayer
Our day is marked by two principal moments: the Mass and Eucharistic adoration. During these two moments the Liturgy of the Hours is prayed in community.
"The principal thing, the most important thing that we must do every day, is to participate in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. (...) In it, Christ, the Eternal High Priest, perpetuates his redemptive sacrifice throughout the altars worldwide, so the effects of his passion may reach all people of all time"(Constitutions, 137).
We want to establish a style of liturgical celebrations as part of our charism, celebrations in which the central presence and action of the chief priest - Jesus Christ - is always highlighted, in which there is perceived that the essential attitude of the secondary priest is the attitude of one who prays, and in which all visible elements lead us to worship God.
That is why we strive to make our liturgical celebrations be exemplary: through the rites, through the spiritual and pastoral tone, and through the due fidelity to both the rubrics and the texts of the liturgical books regarding the norms issued by the Holy See and Episcopal Conferences.
To adore the Blessed Sacrament is "the most excellent act, since one shares Mary's life on earth, when she worshiped Jesus in her womb, in the manger, on the cross or in the Divine Eucharist" (St. Peter Julian Eymard).
