The brothers respond to the call of Christ and want to follow him in a dynamic commitment of their entire being towards holiness, convinced that the true source of life is found in Christ. Thus beginning a continual process of transformation to leave all that is dark behind them and tend ever more towards the Divine Light, they desire to have this experience described by the psalmist:
“In your light, we see light.”
This quest for the fullness of life is embodied for the brothers above all in the contemplation of the Divine Light: the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, prayer, adoration of the Most Blessed Sacrament, the Liturgy of the Hours, the Lectio Divina, and a loving devotion to the Virgin Mary through daily consecration to Mary and through the prayer of the Rosary.
The contemplation of God opens towards a joyful and luminous fraternal communion, where each considers the other superior to himself (Ph 2:3). Marked by internationality, the brothers, some of whom are priests, wish to live a true fraternal communion in their branch, as also with the sisters and the laity of the Community.
It is this common mission that allows us to perceive that the darkness is passing and that the true light is already shining (1 Jn 2:8). Indeed, each brother experiences that by being where the Lord calls him, he spreads charity through the work of grace in the world: youth camp leader, university professor, parish priest, rector of a shrine, preacher of retreats, school chaplain, etc.
