Even though the world is not yet inclined to understand the value of piety, a need is surfacing for fostering it. This is evident from the great number of souls from all walks of life, who, desirous of a life of piety, until now have associated themselves with the Congregation and who reap great spiritual benefits thereby . . .
“True piety” includes an awareness of God’s presence and action in one’s life, deliberate cultivation of one’s spiritual life through personal and communal prayer, and striving to live the Gospel.
