  • We are close to young people in theiractual life-situations, taking the risk of goingintowhatmaybeunexplored areas wherethose in material and spiritual povertyawait the revelation of Christ. In dealingwithyoung people, we show a concernthatis humble, simple and forgetful of self.

  • Wemake Christ known to them as the Truthwho sets them free, as He who calls everyone by name. We help them to discovertheir vocation in the Church and in the world. Weremainready to respond to the Holy Spirit, who challenges us by the hard facts of the lives of young people, and who urges us on to courageous action. (C. 83)

« We are mindfulthatevangelizationis the work of the Holy Spirit, and thatwithout the Spirit’s action everythingremainsidle talk, gibberish. This document seeksnothing more than to be a modest instrument for benefiting the Institute. Our hopeisthatitwillcontribute to rekindlingflames of passion for the Gospel amongadults and young people themselves, called to take on a grace-filled leadership in evangelizingtheircompanions. »
