Contemplative through our mission

Like the merchant in the Gospel who discovers a precious pearl, goes and sells everything he has and then buys the field, so too are those who feel the strength and radical attraction for the Gospel, while remaining in everyday life, able to open themselves up to a life of consecration in the specific form of secularity, by seeking out and loving our practical dedication to everyday life in the times we live in.

We learn that life can be progressively shaped by Jesus Christ and it can be the announcement of the good news of the Gospel in all situations of existence: from the world of education to the factory, from the Church to places where people suffer and fight for justice and peace, or experience hardship from illness.

From this perspective, action expresses a particular way of living the relationship with God. It is an action that is not only carried out for Him, but with Him; and the contemplation of Him becomes so profound that it is not interrupted even during the most demanding activities.

Life is gathered through Christ, who is a “refuge” of peace and serenity, a “dwelling place” that does not distract from the world, a “strength” that does not take away from the fatigue and difficulties of life, but allows them to be borne out of love, and a place of “rest”, because he is a place of profound abandonment in Him:

 

 “Come to me, all of you who are weary and overburdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” (Mt. 11:28-30).
