That, since the strength of the Congregation is dependent upon the intensity of the spiritual life and the fruitful apostolic life of each local community, individual Houses will strive to be vital Christian communities, where the faith, hope and love of each religious is both expressed and developed. (Art.135)
For our brothers in the missions of Bolivia, Brazil, Bulgaria and Tanzania.
For the conversion of sinners, and for all in affliction, temptation and agony.
For all Christians, that in time of trials and suffering they may be supported by the hope of eternal salvation.
If this world is not to become a hell on earth, or a forest where savages dwell, it must be directed with dedication and talent. (KW, 8)
