Iesus Totus

Love burdens itself with the want and woes and losses and even the wrongs of others.

The Charism

"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."

Jesus our all, all for Jesus. This is the theme that covers and sums up our charism. There is in us a profound desire, and even a bold assumption, to want Jesus completely, and to belong to Him completely. The Gospel offers us the secure path through which we can embody all of His life in our own lives.
We are attracted to Jesus who freely gave up His Divinity to become poor, a servant, humble; a gift without reservation and a sacrifice for all of humanity. We want the Word made man- poor in Bethlehem, anonymous in Nazareth, a pilgrim on the streets, abandoned on Golgotha, resurrected by the Father, and glorified together with Him. We want Jesus who announced that the Kingdom has already arrived and is among us, and who retreated in silence to pray and intercede for men to the Father.  Jesus who has lived in abundance to give, but who also offers the narrow way of the Cross.



"Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible." - St. Francis of Assisi

​"A vocation is all about love. It is a life of love in a concrete, particular form that comes from God. Each vocation begins with His love for us. In that love for you, He is calling you to a particular form of life. This love involves first His total gift of Himself to you, and then in response your total gift of self to Him."


Fraternal Life

Our fraternal life is the result of that choice that Jesus made in choosing for himself a community in which he could live the joys and anguish of the proclamation of the Kingdom (cf. Mk 3, 13-14). Christ shares his life in order to share his mission. The community of disciples where everybody lived together and had everything in common (Acts 2, 42-47), is for us the perfect example to follow. The Magna Carta, which must be insistently sought and which is the heart of the Gospel, is that of Love: "I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so also ye ought to love one another. " (Jn 13, 34). Only the intense and true experience of this commandment will be able to make our consecration and our apostolate credible: "By this, all will know that you are my disciples: if you love one another" (Jn 13,35). We know that the holiness of a community is the fruit of the holiness of its members. However, we are also convinced that holiness is a project that we build together. It is wonderful to find a saint in our midst, but it is even more wonderful to find a community of saints. Finally, the community is the place where we become brothers of one another, brothers with outsiders and in particular brothers with the poor.

Send Us Some Love.
