The purpose that we intend is twofold, on the one hand a universal purpose, which is to seek the glory of God and the salvation of souls.
On the other hand, according to our specific purpose, we commit all our strength in order to inculturate the Gospel, namely to extend the Incarnation to all men, in the whole man, and in all the manifestations of man, according to the teachings of the Magisterium of the Church. We want to dedicate ourselves to the evangelization of the culture – to work to transform the following through the power of the Gospel:
- mankind’s criteria of judgment,
- determining values,
- points of interest,
- lines of thought,
- sources of inspiration, and
- models of life.
We cannot forget what the Second Vatican Council pointed out: “One of the gravest errors of our time is the dichotomy between the faith which many profess and the practice of their daily lives” (Gaudium et Spes, 43). This dichotomy is primarily due to the fact that the world in recent times has come to the point of separating and detaching itself from the Christian foundations of its culture leading to the de-christianization of the culture.
