“The spirit particular to the religious of this Fraternity is essentially Eucharistic – we live in Him, with Him, through Him, for Him – imitating in their interior and exterior life, the life of Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament and offering themselves in oblation of LOVE, closely united to the Sacred Victim of the Altar, for the greatest glory of their Eternal Father.” (from our Constitutions)
Any authentically Christian spirituality is Eucharistic, because the Eucharist is the “source and summit of the whole Christian life” (LG 11). Founded on the Church’s faith in the Most Blessed Sacrament, our Eucharistic spirituality is unique in the accents it places on that faith.
The center of our day is the celebration of the Holy Mass. This core of our spirituality then radiates throughout the rest of the day as we remain present before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Our prayer before Jesus Eucharist is above all an act of adoration.
“The Church has an essential function, which is that of giving God the worship of adoration, the supreme worship which can only be given to God. […] This essential function of adoring God has a very special place in the Church, since Jesus Christ is truly and substantially present in her in the Holy Eucharist.” (from our Constitutions)
But our Eucharistic spirituality is not limited to our times of prayer. We are called to live in union with and in imitation of Our Sacramental Lord in every moment of our lives. Above all, we strive to offer our lives to God the Father, just as Jesus did on the Cross: the very same Sacrifice which is re-presented in the Sacrament of the Altar.
“The Church and the world have a great need of eucharistic worship. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration and in contemplation that is full of faith and ready to make reparation for the great faults and crimes of the world by our adoration never cease.” (St. John Paul II, DC 3)
