Live simply, celibately, in solidarity

On behalf of this mission entrusted to us, 
we vow to live simply, celibately, and in solidarity
with each other
and with all who cherish life.
We want to be poor enough to experience our own vulnerability 
and our dependence on others, 
to be open enough that others may feel at ease with us,
to live prepared to go where we are called
and to do the work we are called to do.
Love is the impetus which gives our way of life
its meaning and direction,
empowering us to commit all that we have 
and all that we are
to help bring about a world
where all live in harmony 
and where no one is in want.
