We are called to witness Christ’s healing love, as expressed by our charism of hospitality, through a community of faith and a compassionate service to God’s suffering people.
We devote ourselves to the sick and suffering. We serve the mentally impaired, the physically disabled, the elderly, the homeless, and those suffering from drug and alcohol dependency.
We are all called to follow Christ through baptism. Each does this in a different way. For some, that way may be a call to follow Christ through religious life.
The followers of St. John of God today sum up his spirit in the word hospitality. “Do good for yourself,” he said, “by doing good for others.”
“ The actual gospel message, the real simple word of ‘follow Me’ and then left everything and followed Him, always made an impact with me.”Brother Richard, USA
