People of prayer

Like Jesus, the brothers wish to be “persons of prayer”: persons seeking an intimate and continuous relationship with Jesus, their “Beloved Brother and Lord”. They are particularly attentive to the acts and words of Jesus in the Gospel, allowing the Gospel to penetrate, little by little (‘drop by drop’, said Charles de Foucauld), their lives and reactions. They join in the prayer of God’s people, praying the psalms in union with Jesus for all who yearn and suffer and strive for the ‘fullness of life’. In particular, following Brother Charles’ example, they spend time with Jesus in the Eucharist and offer their lives in union with his perfect self—offering ‘for the world’s salvation’, so that “everyone may be saved”.
