Dios nos llama a recibir la Buena Nueva de salvación y a proclamar el reino del amor, y de la libertad, la justicia y la paz.

El Señor Jesús nos desafía a formar una espiritualidad eclesial que se expresa en la celebración litúrgica, la oración personal, y por una peregrinación de fe al Reino.

El Espíritu nos llama a participar en una variedad de ministerios el uno al otro, al Pueblo de Dios, y al mundo entero.

Dios nos urge a entrar el futuro con un corazón abierto, con esperanza y con valentía.
