God's Will, Simplicity, Prayer
Christ is our life. Jesus said, "I am the way, truth and life." Jesus also teaches us: "I am the vine, you are the branches . . . Abide in me." Our way of life can be summed up in twelve brief sentences:

  1. Be consumed by the merciful love of God.
  2. Love Jesus with a burning love.
  3. Show merciful love to others.
  4. Do God's will joyfully.
  5. Be simple.
  6. Pray always from the heart.
  7. Trust in Jesus totally.
  8. Be humble
  9. Desire and strive for holiness.
10. Constantly be led by the Holy Spirit.
11. Use the gifts of the Holy Spirit, especially the charismatic gifts.
12. Spread the good news of salvation in Jesus.
