Mission is the fruit of deep Christ-experience the individual has and the urge to share it with others. The Church is, by its very nature, missionary on account of its origin in the mission of the Son and the Holy Spirit. The very reason of our existence in the Church as Claretians is our identity as the Missionary Servants of the Word. Being Claretians is the concrete way of being men, Christians, religious, priests and apostles, and all our life is shaped by this charism which is offered and shared in the community. Just as in the life of St. Antony Mary Claret, our vocational experience is the organizing principle of our existence and the motivating force of our entire life and apostolate. It is this inner experience of the call of God that renders us restless with an ardent zeal for God and consumes us with the ‘passion of God’ for His people. It provokes us to make an urgent, timely and effective response to the challenges of our times.
