United in a planetary thanksgiving, rooted in the past and open to the future, may we implement our Lord's dream for our wounded world.
“The Institute has its origin in the very heart of God, who so loved the world that He gave His only Son to teach all people the way to salvation, so that those who believe in Him may not die but may have eternal life. Our God is supremely great, yet He is happy to reach out humbly towards the little ones.”(Nicolas Barré)
“To follow Jesus is to find the courage to embrace all the hardships of the present time, in order to make room for the creativity that only the Spirit is capable of inspiring.” (Pope Francis)
Our Institute resembles the Church. It will not develop without facing persecution, trouble
and opposition. What appears to destroy it is precisely what will strengthen it. Hence it is necessary to live always in a spirit of abandonment to God, trusting in Him for all our needs.
