About Us

Charism

The rule and life of this order is to observe the holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ by living Obedience, Poverty, Chastity, and the Apostolate. (Rules from 1884)

Salvatorian spirituality finds its source in a deep communion with the Savior. It has a permanent inspiration in the evangelical message of Christ, who wants all people to be saved. The Salvatorians try to experience that truth personally and then they proclaim that the goodness and love of God for humankind was revealed in Jesus Christ.

In Jesus Christ, the only true Savior of the world, all people are called to union with God and one another to form the People of God. Therefore the Salvatorians have an apostolic goal: to proclaim to all people, that Jesus is the Divine Savior. They want to do it first of all by a personal imitation of the Savior, according to the command of Fr. Jordan: “In His great mercy the Divine Savior has called us to become images of Himself, to become as much like Him as possible to become holy.” (April 20, 1894)
