Our charism is linked to Ignatian spirituality. The dynamic of the Exercises of St. Ignatius helps us to engage in a process of personal integration on a path of encounter with God, the Creator of all things, shaping our charism and our spirituality. Seeking and finding God in all things leads to conversion and inner freedom, following the poor Christ among the poor, "without calculation and without reserve”.
“St. Ignatius of Loyola was a Father and Master for our foundress. She desired that her religious family, while faithful to its own charism, would be imbued with his spirit.
This is why the Spiritual Exercises are a means through which we are formed and freed to grow in holiness. For the same reason, our Constitutions are inspired by those of the Society of Jesus. (C. 7)
The experience of the Spiritual Exercises and the spirit of our Foundress (Letter July 2nd) unify and commit us to the manner of living the kenosis of Jesus.
The experience of our Foundress is marked by Ignatian dimensions that accompanied her in her constant search for and fulfilment of God's project within her. Her experience of discernment is a legacy for us in seeking God's will.
