The Missionaries embrace celibacy in imitation of Jesus for the sake of the Kingdom of God (Mt 19:12). It is a beautiful gift from the Lord, whereby He captures a brother’s heart and, expands the heart in love for all men and women. This celibate love cannot be contained. It is a love that reaches out to the lost and needy to offer the Good News. It makes the brothers uniquely available to be sent in evangelisation and enables them to give their undivided attention to the Lord (1 Cor 7:32-35). To fulfil the celibate vocation, the Missionaries maintain a deep and strong prayer life. In addition, the way of life of the brotherhood provides an atmosphere of acceptance, sharing, affection, and challenge, bringing a healthy balance to our lives, enabling us to live celibacy joyfully and freely.
