RENEW OUR MISSION
This is the goal that the whole Passionist Family has in its heart, in its soul and in its mind, whether consecrated or lay... In the Third Centenary of the Congregation (1720 – 2020), founded by Saint Paul of the Cross, the Passionist family wants to make a quantum leap and promote a new Call to Mission to form people by means of the Passion of the Apostles, Prophets and Witnesses of the love of Christ Crucified.
THE SPIRIT OF THE COMMUNITIES IN ORDER TO BE MORE MEANINGFUL.
THE HEART OF RELIGIOUS AND LAITY IN ORDER TO LIVE WITH GREATER ATTRACTIVENESS.
THE MIND OF THE COMMUNICATOR TO USE A NEW LANGUAGE SUITABLE FOR TODAY'S WORLD.
The Jubilee we propose to...
This is the word chosen to express appreciation and praise for our brothers and sisters who have gone before us, and who, until now, have been the origin of a huge outpouring of love. Thanks to them, the Congregation is now in 60 countries and 400 communities with thousands of projects of life...
This is the perspective from which the Passionists wish to view to the future.
This is our statement...
POOR AND INHOSPITABLE PLACES.
IN THE CAUSES OF DISADVANTAGED MEN AND WOMEN IN THE ENCOUNTER WITH GOD.
OURSELVES TO LEARN HOW TO LOOK.
THE LOVE THAT LOVES BY LOVING...
OF MERCY, TO EMBRACE THE REALITY OF OUR WORLD.
OF A COMMON EXPERIENCE, IN ORDER TO AVOID THE EVILS THAT WOUND THE PLANET.
OF HOPE, TO CONVEY THE TENDERNESS THAT THE LOVE OF CHRIST OFFERS TO EVERYONE...
FROM LIFE'S EXPERIENCES TO WORK WITH OUR HEART AND EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE TO ACCEPT THE EMBRACE OF GOD WHO IS FATHER AND MOTHER...
THE CURIOSITY AND AMAZEMENT OF OPENING OUR SOUL TO AN ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS CRUCIFIED WHO DIES ON THE CROSS OUT OF LOVE...
THE UNCERTAINTY OF DEVELOPING COMPLETE CONFIDENCE IN THE SPIRIT WHO GIVES "WINGS" TO UNDERTAKE THE JOURNEY AHEAD…
this is the conviction of men and women who raise their voices to ask for everyone what is necessary, expected and denounce injustice. Passionists who believe that it continues to be necessary in this world to fulfill God's dream. Prophets of every day who have the word and hope as their banner. Prophets who decry what does not work and announce the best solution. Who remember the infinite love of God who wants light to banish every shadow. In this world of ours many people need words of affection, of tenderness, of comfort.
The Passionists are prophets who testify that even in suffering and the cross there exists redeeming power. We need passion to learn, create and connect with human beings.
With intention of being...
