Living as a consecrated man in the Emmanuel community
Seized by Christ, they live a strong and deep friendship with him that leads them to choose the celibacy that Jesus himself lived, to be constantly at his side, to the point of becoming his intimates and companions. Friends of the Bridegroom, they enter into the ardent desire of Christ that all men be saved. Animated by the Holy Spirit, anchored in the prayer of adoration, they want to witness to everyone that God is our Father.
Lay people immersed in society, their way of life is so simple that it does not distinguish them from their contemporaries. In all areas of their lives, they are invited to become brothers to all people and manifest God's closeness and goodness to humanity.
By the positive choice of celibacy in the likeness of Christ, consecrated persons signify that God is sufficient to fill a man's heart and that the Kingdom towards which we strive is already in our midst.
Being at the heart of the world allows us to meet people who do not know God but have a great thirst for love. Working and listening, being attentive to the sufferings of the people around us is at the heart of our vocation
