Our mission as contemplatives includes in a special way, prayer and sacrifice for priests, offering our lives so that Christ’s ministers may be worthy dispensers of the grace of God.

Ordination to the priesthood is open to those members of our Community who are so called by God and who have the human, spiritual, intellectual and pastoral qualities necessary to fulfill this sublime ministry.

“The priests of our Fraternity shall make the celebration of the Sacred Mysteries the most sublime moment of their priestly action. In unity with Christ the Priest, may they renew the gift of their ministry for the Church.”

“May our priests be solicitous in the fulfillment of their apostolic duties. In these, they shall project the riches of our contemplative life. May the faithful not see in us compensated workers, but holy pastors, concerned at every moment with the Glory of God and the salvation of souls.” (from our Constitutions)
