THROUGH OUR OBLATION WE ARE INSTRUMENTS OF THE SAVIOUR

I wish you to change the end of our litanies; instead of saying Jesus sacerdos, we must say Christe salvator. That is the aspect under which we ought to contemplate our divine Master.
Our particular vocation is such that we are associated in a special manner with the redemption of men…
Through the oblation of our whole life, may we never contribute to lessen the effects of his redemption for ourselves and for those whom we are called to evangelize.

Letter addressed to “our dear brothers, the missionaries at Aix”,
July 1816, O.W. VI n 12

As co-operators of Christ the Saviour each member of the Mazenodian family has the vocation to be open to the work of the Saviour in their own lives and to invite others to the same liberating experience.
