There is no doubt that in the eyes of many in the world today, a vowed life of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience seems like madness! No Jesuit would deny the challenge of this life. We cannot live this way without the help of God’s grace. But we embrace it knowing that for us it is a path of life, a way of uniting ourselves with, and witnessing to, Christ in our world.
In poverty, we become free to share the life of the poor and to use whatever resources we have for the service of others
In chastity, we become free to be Christ-like men for others, in friendship and communion with all, and especially with those who share our mission of service
In obedience, we become free to respond to the call of Christ and be sent wherever the need is greatest.
