The Phenomenon of Hidden Life
The phenomenon of hidden religious life is outdated for some, senseless for others, not entirely comprehensible to most, while for us, it is unique and beautiful. The hidden life devoted to God, in addition to the lack of external signs of consecration in our secular look, forms our way of following Jesus and affects our apostolate. With our calling unknown to the world, following the guidance of Blessed Honorat, we want - like Jesus in Nazareth - to fulfill the Father's redemptive mission.
The testimony of our life should be like a seed cast into the soil, to build the Kingdom of Christ in the world through things that are small and seemingly unimportant. The lack of external signs of consecration gives our apostolate a special character and enables us to reach many groups, even those who are reluctant toward the Church.
The idea of hidden life, taken by Bl. Honorat from the Gospel of Jesus' childhood, allows us to experience the redemptive dimension of everyday life in every ministry, at all times and in every place.
According to the founder, the Eucharist - the timeless presence of God hidden in the form of bread - is the prototype of our concealment. By the power of Jesus in the Eucharist, we want to expand God's Kingdom regardless of changing external conditions.
Service is the very core of the identity of the Servants of Jesus. Although in today's hedonistic world service is completely anachronistic and ignored, for us it has become the sure and only way to fulfill our Founder's charism.
The source of our service is the desire to imitate Christ, who by humility became the humble Servant of Yahweh. We follow in the footsteps of our Master, who through His service, from the Incarnation to the Cross and Resurrection, has redeemed every man. Following His example, we undertake all apostolic tasks with love and out of love.
The attitude of Mary, a humble Handmaiden, who with submission and trust opened her heart to God's plans and implemented them with generous love, is particularly close to our Congregation.
