For the Missionary, clarifying and sharing one’s inner vision is always connected with what one receives in prayer and shares with others.
The other portion will be entirely consecrated
to outside works requiring the most active zeal
such as missions, preaching, confessions,
catechizing, directing young people,
visiting the sick and prisoners,
giving spiritual retreats and other similar exercises.
1818 Rule, Part Two, Chapter One. Regarding other principal observances
The Christian cannot divorce prayer from life-experience and action:
While maintaining within ourselves an atmosphere of silence and inner peace, we seek his presence in the hearts of the people and in the events of daily life as well as in the Word of God, in the sacraments and in prayer. We are pilgrims, walking with Jesus in faith, hope and love.

“The most satisfying thing in life is to have been able to give a large part of one’s self to others.” Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
