As a secular institute, we have a special mission in the world and for the world. We are called to lead the entire world back to Christ through his Mother and we do this specifically by living in the world while not being of the world. Our main mission for the world is to preach, not necessarily with words, but mainly through our being and actions, that God exists and that he is worth living and dying for. Wherever we go in the world, we want to create a Marian atmosphere, an atmosphere that in the midst of a darkened, materialistic society lifts the soul to heaven, to Eternal Light.
“In our world, often dominated by a secularized culture which encourages and promotes models of life without God, the faith of many is sorely tested, and is frequently stifled and dies. Thus we see an urgent need for powerful proclamation and solid, in-depth Christian formation. There is so much needed today for mature Christian personalities to be conscious of their baptismal identity, of their vocation and mission in the world! There is great need for living Christian communities! And here are the Movements and the new ecclesial communities: They are the response given by the Holy Spirit to this critical challenge at the end of the millennium. You are this providential response.”
(Saint John Paul II to Ecclesial Movements)
