"Grace-filled community life"

"It is Christ’s love within us that makes such sacrifice possible
and it is such sacrifice that makes community possible.

"God has called us to this:
'It was not you who chose me,
but I who chose you
and appointed you to go and bear fruit.'

"The Church and the Order are both counting on us
to bear this fruit
of radiant and grace-filled community life
for the edification of all."
