The self-offering of the only begotten Son of the Father was to unify the whole mankind reconciling us all to God in one body,
abolishing the dividing walls of hostility (Eph 2, 14-16). The holy sacrament of Eucharist, which Jesus instituted, both signifies
and brings about this unity. The celebration of this sacrament of unity moves us to yearn and work for the unity of the body of Christ.
We are in a special way bound to foster unity among those who invoke the Holy Trinity and confess Jesus as Lord and Saviour (UR. 1), so that the prayer and wish of our Lord “that they may be one even as we are one” (John 17, 22) may be realised. As brothers and sisters in the heavenly Father, we, rising above the barriers of cast, creed and culture must be instrument of peace and bound of unity in the whole world so that we may live a life of peace and tranquillity and that the whole world may know that God is our loving Father (SMR. P. 50).
Sharing the mission of Christ who proclaimed liberation at all levels (Lk 4, 18-19); we have to strive for justice and development
with the principles of gospel in mind (RHP. 17-19). It is the spirit of the gospel and the liberating love of Christ that should
inspires us to be the voice of the voiceless, strength of the weak and oppressed and to strive for the Eucharistic equity and
love that were so evident in the first Christians.
The sacrament of Divine Compassion (DivyaKarunya) enjoins on us the duty of looking for new models of service and ministry, and of committing ourselves to the least of our brothern (Matt 25, 40) in a true spirit of selfless services (Nishkamakarma). We understand our social apostolate in terms of our concern for human values, our effort for liberation from social injustice, and improved quality of human living. We shall always bear in mind that social, economic and cultural liberation is ultimately realised in the liberation from sin (EN. 35), the root cause of all evil. .
The life and mission of Jesus Christ, the first missionary of the Father, consisted primarily in proclaiming the good news of the Kingdom of God and communicating the new life to all (VC. 72). In the same mission entrusted on by the Church, we share by the founding charism of our congregation.
Being missionaries of the Holy Eucharist we draw inspiration from the mystery of the Body and Blood of Christ as the source of all our apostolic activities.
Following the patterns of Jesus, the Evangeliser, and our way of life as missionaries shall be one of ‘bread broken’ for the life of the world (John 6, 33). This would demand from us the self-emptying and self-giving attitude of the Master who washed the feet of His disciples and gave Himself totally in the Eucharist. When we enact this, both in our Eucharistic Liturgy and in our lives, we hope to have ‘our hearts burning and our eyes opened’ to set out to proclaim the good news of the Resurrection to our brethren (Lk 24, 13-35).
Our Missionary vocations bind us to share also in the local church’s commitment of building up mature Christian communities. In the erection decree of our congregation we read: “This congregation is founded to be of help to our diocese… and for benefit of souls.” (DMS. P8) in this spirit of founding charism and founders’ apostolic concern, our congregation takes up parish apostolate. This is a call to work among the faithful to bring about ‘the stature of the fullness of Christ’ in them (Eph 4, 13).
In parish apostolate we take up parishes in view of forming ideal worshipping Christian communities and true Eucharistic fraternity after the model of the first Christians (Acts 2, 37-47).
Our parish must include also rendering pastoral help in parishes. Our parish apostolate helps us to realise a true blend of religious commitment and ministerial priesthood. It is a call and challenge to be witnesses of authentic Christian life and priestly dedication.
