O Come Let Us Adore Him, Christ the Lord! Among other things, the birth of the Incarnate Word urges us to strictly live holy poverty, since whoever has God is extremely rich. It also urges us to live in joy- a fruit of the Holy Spirit and a consequence o...

Mission "ad gentes"

The mission which the Church received through the Apostles is a universal mission that knows no boundaries and which concerns salvation in all its aspects, in accordance with the fullness of life that Christ came to bring. Above all, the missionary activity is carried on in the mission "ad gentes" and it is a primary activity of the Church that is essential and never-ending. Indeed, the Church "cannot withdraw from her ongoing mission of bringing the gospel to the multitudes -the millions and millions of men and women-who as yet do not know Christ the Redeemer of humanity."(Christifideles Laici, 35).

Therefore, as a Religious Family we want to make our own the command of Christ to "be his witnesses to the ends of the earth" (Acts 1:8).

“There are still very large areas where there are no local churches or where their number is insufficient in relation to the vastness of the territory and the density of the population. There is still much to be done in implanting and developing the Church. This phase of ecclesial history, called the plantatio Ecclesiae, has not reached its end; indeed, for much of the human race it has yet to begin. Responsibility for this task belongs to the universal Church and to the particular churches, to the whole people of God and to all its missionary forces. Every church, even one made up of recent converts, is missionary by its very nature, and is both evangelized and evangelizing. Faith must always be presented as a gift of God to be lived out in community (families, parishes, associations), and to be extended to others through witness in word and deed."(Redemptoris Missio, 49).
