El cristianismo es una forma de vida permanente. Quien dice ser cristiano, pero no vive como tal, miente. Muchas veces, en nuestra vida de discípulos, olvidamos lo importante que es llevar a Jesús a todos los lugares a los que vamos, o incluso pensamos que esta tarea tiene que ver sólo con la predicación, es decir, con la mera palabra. Sin embargo, es necesario tener claro que vivir cristianamente es una tarea que necesita grandes esfuerzos, los cuales van mucho más allá de las palabras, van a las acciones.

During the 9 days which precede the celebration of our Founder, we ask Jesus and Mary, the Superiors of our Congregation, so that the power of the Holy Spirit fills our hearts. So, the Spirit of the truth will cleanse us of all which clutters our internal life and the Spirit of freedom will urge us to love more and to give us to the mission "Corde magno et animo volenti.”
