  1. To maintain in the Church the Spirit of Pentecost, which opened the Apostles to the far ends of the earth and made them “missionaries” (envoys): it is the “catholic” or the universal spirit that belongs to the very nature of the Church.

  2. To live the universal mission of redemption in union with Christ in his Church as the foundation of a common apostolic responsibility: “As the Father has sent me, even so I send you” (Jn 20:21).

  3. To participate in the proclamation of the Gospel with the example of one’s own life and with the contribution of one’s own professional and productive human potentialities, also presented in monetary offerings.
