The Community’s charism includes life in the Spirit, the communion of the states of life, and apostolic works.
Life in the Spirit
The spirituality of the Community is centered on interior life and unceasing prayer. For each member, mental prayer is the source of all they do.
The Community has a strong conviction that the Lord’s coming is close at hand and that we can hasten his coming and anticipate the Kingdom through praise, the beauty of the liturgy and fraternal life.
The Community also welcomes the charisms and gifts of the Holy Spirit for the sake of mission and evangelization. A special interest in the Jewish roots of the Christian faith moves the Community to pray for the People of Israel as well as for the unity of Christians. A final wellspring of the Beatitudes’ spirituality is Marian devotion and consecration.
Communion of the States of Life
As an “ecclesial family,” the Community aspires to an authentic fraternal communion between its consecrated brothers and sisters and its lay members, taking the Trinitarian life as its model. The Community is comprised of three branches united as one body, sharing in Liturgy, fraternal life, and mission.
Apostolic Works and Mission
Through the witness of its life, the Community desires a share in the mission of the Church. Through media, retreats, hospitality, pilgrimages, conferences, family and youth ministry, student and young adult ministry, parishes, and shrines, the Community seeks to participate in the New Evangelization.
The community also maintains numerous works of compassion and humanitarian aid, such as hospitals, orphanages, women’s shelters, and welcoming into certain houses persons with various handicaps and poverties.
Our common call can be summed up as contemplation, communion, compassion, and mission.
