The Missionaries seek to have Jesus’ attitude of trust in the Father’s provident care, living in absolute dependence on the Father (Lk 12:22-32). We also seek to be detached from all things and relationships, not storing up treasures on earth (Mt 6:19-21). At the appropriate time in their journey, brothers give away all that they own to the poor and follow Jesus in a radical way (Mk 10:17-22). The Missionaries live a simple way of life in regard to food, clothing and housing. All that we do have, we hold in common. Our poverty enables us to move lightly on the journey and is lived in a spirit of joyful simplicity, filled with gratitude for the goodness of God who provides so bountifully for us.
