We are to live our fraternal life as the first Christian communities who were of one heart and one mind. No one is to claim that any of her possessions are her own, but we are to have everything in common, devoting ourselves to the teaching of the Apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers.
 (Cfr. Acts 2:42; 4:32. Const. 58)

We form a true family in God's presence and we give all our effort to live an authentic spiritually of communion according to the charism given to our Institute. The origin of our fraternal life is found in the mystery of God, Three and One, a community of Love.
(Cfr. PC 15. Const. 59)
