About our mission

There is no holy person in the world that does well and does not transgress. (Ecclesiastes 7:20).
“Apart from the earth” we could be perfect and at peace as a castaway on a desert island. Nobody disturbs him; he never quarrels and is jealous of nobody. Some are looking for inner peace in nature, and for perfection in mystic religions. In vain! Then our reason to be is in fact the opposite of tranquility: we live in the middle of life's stormy sea with the mission to correct what is chaotic and imperfect in this world. To do this, it is necessary to know that neither problems nor others make the life difficult, but our stubbornness against the laws of God. Anyone who understands his mission is delighted with the precepts as though he possessed all treasures (Psalm 119:14). Indeed, for the one who likes God's word, failures become exceptional and to overcome increasingly easy and pleasant.
There is no greater honor and happiness then to serve God and to have as “fruit holiness and for the end eternal life” (Romans 6:22). A life without vocation is a series of events that would lead nowhere. “Life, a mission” is the key that opens the treasures of the Gospel, and which provides both joy and sense to life.
Our mission is not about making money but to spread love, peace, justice, joy and divine wisdom by following the steps of Christ:
Who committed no sin, nor was any deceit found in his mouth. (I Peter 2:22).
The mission makes our life noble, meaningful and accomplished. There is no more noble activity than to do anything wholeheartedly, as for the Lord.
There are varieties of gifts, varieties of ministries but the same Spirit, and the same Lord.
But to each one is given the manifestation of the Sprit for the common good. (I Corinthians 12, 4-7)
All men have their particular mission on earth. Some are aware of it; others exercise it more or less consciously. If all people contribute, in one way or another, to improve the creation by their activities within the universal community, the true servant serves the purposes of God by loving his commandments as Christ loved them.
In all your ways know God and he will straighten your path. (Proverbs 3:6)
The “ways” are universal highways on which all humans serve in one way or another God's plans. They do it usually by participating in charitable works, educational, humanitarian and technological activities. The “paths” are small roads leaving the big universal “way” which make us discover our particular mission. Generally, our mission consists simply in living God's word as a couple and within the family. Sometimes it may add works of charity, activities in free health centers, orphanages etc. Activities where we can listen to others, never speak badly about the others and perform our mission by doing all things without grumbling or disputing in order to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation (cf. Philippians 2:14-15).
There are many mistakes; especially by those who believe, they have the special mission to announce God's word. Many preachers are so preoccupied to make a name that they fail to fulfill even the divine commandment “Honor your father and your mother”, and their fundamental duty to teach the ways of God to their children (cf. Deuteronomy 6:7). We must never forget:
This is pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father, to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. (James 1:27)
