Touched and set on fire by God’s love which is the source of our charism, we are called and sent in a spirit of compassion and solidarity to our fast changing world where we see:

  • the collapsing of structures at all level, e.g. family life, church, state, economy, ecology

  • devastating poverty and hunger

  • inter- religious conflicts and lack of religious freedom

  • an ever increasing movement of peoples including refugees, women and children who are trafficked

  • wholesale exploitation of natural resources for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the many

  • And yet, side by side with these realities, we also see :

  • a global consciousness of searching/ reaching for the Divine

  • an increased awareness of the uniqueness, diversity, connectedness of all life

  • We are sustained and nourished by a spirituality which springs from contemplation and moves us to prophetic action and dialogue.
