Statement of Intention


"I Thirst"



There are many priests who are showing a great interest in reviving the Corpus Christi Movement for secular priests, in order to live this spirituality in the context of their own ministry and priestly vocation. And to strive for personal holiness, and for their salvation and sanctification of all souls.

The aim is to attempt to live the Gospel more fully and faithfully in greater simplicity and poverty of spirit. By sharing spiritually in the Charism and Spirit given by God to the Universal Church through Mother Teresa and the Missionaries of Charity family

Jesus on the Cross said "I Thirst". We as priests hear His Call to satiate this Thirst for love and for souls when we realize that we are thirsting for His Love. Through our priestly ministry we have the gift to satiate the Thirst of Jesus for souls, and the thirst of souls for the Love of Jesus. We do this by living our lives centered in the Eucharist, source and summit of our priestly life, and by a complete abandonment to the hands of Mary, Mother of the Church and Mother of priests.

Jesus is thirsting for our love, so let us quench His Thirst with the gift granted to each priest by working for the salvation and sanctification of souls - men, women and children.
