Spirituality and Mission

Spirituality and mission flow from the Eucharist, the Sacrament of the Lord’s Supper, which He instituted as a sacrament of love and life for the world. The scope of the Congregation is to promote the central place of the Eucharist, force of renewal for church and society, or as the Rule of Life states in its number 1, to try “to live the mystery of the Eucharist fully, and to make known its meaning, so that Christ’s reign may come and the glory of God be revealed to the world”. This implies in practice, that the members of the Congregation are engaged in many types of pastoral work, among which parishes and city-center churches or shrines take a preferential place. By study and publications of various kinds they try to deepen the love for and knowledge of the Eucharist and to offer spiritual nourishment and pastoral inputs. Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament (adoration) has a central place in the personal and community life of the members. It gives them strength and joy, inspiration and orientation for life and work. They try to help people to discover the riches of this source of life and to accompany them on their way of deepening their love for the Eucharist.
