Jesus Missionary of the Father and Redeemer of humanity

We Claretian Missionaries have been called to full configuration with Jesus, the Father’s missionary and the Redeemer of humanity. By following in his footsteps, we make his life present in this world and communicate the mystery of redemption to all peoples. (Constitution n.3)


The Eucharist is the center of our consecrated life, of our spirituality and of our mission. In the mystery of the Eucharist lies the secret of the vitality of our Congregation. For participation in the Eucharistic life, the Claretian must transform herself into an apostle, in spreading the Kingdom of Christ in the world. (Constitution n.8)

Immaculate Heart of Mary

The Immaculate Heart of Mary, full of grace, which opened itself to the Father’s plan in generous fidelity, to welcome, generate and give to the world Jesus, the Son of God, is the model of our missionary heart, throbbing with love for God, sensitive, open and available to the needs of the brothers. (Constitution No. 9)

St. Anthony Mary Claret

Let us try to assimilate the example of the life of St. Anthony Mary Claret, his deep love for the Eucharist, for the Immaculate Heart of Mary, for the Church, and his ardent missionary zeal, invoking him to bless and protect every Claretian. (Constitution n.10)


The interior life is the basis of our consecrated missionary life and constitutes a vital necessity for us. It leads us to abandon ourselves to God, letting ourselves be loved by him and joyfully accepting his will (Constitution n.68)


All forming one heart and one soul, we live in communion of faith, hope and love, around the Word of God and rooted in the Eucharist. Called by the Lord to carry out the same mission, we share the joys and hopes, the pains and anxieties of all men, so that we can be truly sensitive to the multiple needs of people, especially the poor and those who suffer. (Constitution n.5)


We Claretian Missionaries are called to work in evangelization in every part of the world by all possible means. Animated by love and a spirit of sacrifice, we give ourselves fully to the person of Jesus Christ in the evangelizing mission of the Church. (Constitution n.7)

The announcement of the Word and the service of charity

Through the explicit proclamation of the Word and the service of charity, in preference to the poorest poor, we try to live the spirit of the beatitudes in the practice of spiritual and corporal works of mercy. (Constitution No. 7)


We want to cultivate, in a special way, the virtues of goodness and joy, as they are destined to represent God’s fatherhood and goodness. Goodness and joy are virtues that characterize all of our missionary being and activity. With goodness in our hearts and a smile on our lips we will overcome any difficulty and any struggle that arises in following the Lord. (Constitution n.12)
