As a Congregation, we are now in the final phase of our journey of missionary animation centred on our Spiritan mission. Mission must be at the heart of our lives if we wish to follow authentically in the footsteps of Claude Poullart des Places and Francis Libermann.
“The evangelisation of the ‘poor’ is our purpose” the Spiritan Rule of Life reminds us. Libermann was attracted to serving the poor and the abandoned of his time (N.D.XIII, 170) and he saw mission as the essential goal of the Society he founded, with the religious life, community life and the internal organisation of his Society at the service of this goal.
In listening to our founders, we will rediscover this clarity of vision, enabling us to readjust the direction of our lives to be more rooted in the Word of God and our founding charism. The images which Fr. Libermann uses to reveal his teaching and the depths of his soul, are inspirational and will help us in fulfilling our Mission. We will also listen to what our Holy Father Pope Francis has to say to us in his Apostolic Exhortation GAUDETE ET EXSULTATE - ON THE CALL TO HOLINESS IN TODAY’S WORLD.
