Charism

WE WANT TO MAKE A NEW INCARNATION OF THE WORD IN EVERY MAN

English

Through the specific charism1 of the Institute, all its members, must work in complete docility to the Holy Spirit, and under the guidance of Mary, to enhance for Jesus Christ all that is authentically human, even in the most difficult situations, and under the most adverse circumstances. This is nothing but the grace to work, concretely, to prolong Christ in the families, in education, in the communication media, at academic level, and in every legitimate manifestation in the life of men. It is the gift of making of every person like “a new Incarnation of the Word”2, by being particularly missionaries and Marian.

MISSION AND APOSTOLATE

The mission as inspired by the founder, and confirmed through the authority of the Church, it is to take to plenitude the consequences of the Incarnation of the Word, which is “the compendium and root of all good”.We want to take this mission particularly to the vast world of culture, i.e., to the “manifestation of man as person, community, people and nation.”4.
