All of the brothers in the Servants of the Word have one thing in common. They have discovered “the treasure in the field” and have gladly gone and sold everything to purchase the field (Matthew 13:44). The surpassing worth of knowing Christ has caused us to re-orient our lives in order to serve him alone. While there are many limitations imposed by our humanity, our weakness and our circumstances, we nonetheless seek to make our whole lives, our energies and our resources count for him and his kingdom. This is not a chore or a great sacrifice, but something we have undertaken joyfully. This orientation has not only led us to our initial decision but continues to fuel our life and service in an ongoing way.
"It is truly a divine blessing to strive together with the Servants for the Lord and for his Church, united in the one Christian faith and in our consecrated celibate lives, faithful to our different traditions, and wholly dedicated to the coming of the Kingdom of God.'
