The source of our life, our joy, and our fruitfulness comes from our intimate relationship with Jesus Christ as Spouse.  This relationship is kindled by our life of prayer and contemplation. In our prayer we seek to be present to Him, to receive Him, and to love Him, at all times, even in the smallest of things so that we may unreservedly say 'yes' again and again with Mary to Jesus.  By being present to Christ we seek be present to Him in those we serve and to bring God's presence to all those we encounter, carrying Jesus Christ in our minds, on our lips, and in our hearts.  As Missionaries of the Word we take special care to listen to Christ speak through His Word in daily Lectio Divina and the Liturgy.

    "The word of God is the first source of all Christian spirituality. It gives rise to a personal relationship with the living God and with his saving and sanctifying will. It is for this reason that from the very beginning of Institutes of Consecrated Life, and in a special way in monasticism, what is called lectio divina has been held in the highest regard. By its means the word of God is brought to bear on life, on which it projects the light of that wisdom which is a gift of the Spirit."
