Our Passionist Vocation

OUR PASSIONIST CHARISM 

Centrality of the Experience of Saint Paul of the Cross

For Saint Paul of the Cross, the Passion of Jesus is the clearest expression of God’s love. Paul looked at the person of Jesus; he wished to be an image of Jesus, his Crucified Love. He gathered companions to announce and keep alive the Memory of the Passion of Jesus, the sign of God’s saving love for his people. Paul of the Cross invites us to three things: to meditate on the sufferings of Jesus; to find meaning for our life through the Passion; to bring this meaning to others, inviting them to keep the Memory of the Passion of Jesus alive in their hearts. All our daily prayer, meditation, community life, and apostolate is an attempt to live and practice the Passion of Jesus as sign of God’s love, as Saint Paul of the Cross did.  (Document of 2006 Passionist General Chapter)
