The choice of being part of our community,
with a particular consecration to God
and the commitment to the three evangelical counsels,
may have a different meaning
for each person.
Those who have a vocation
to a consecrated life,
after a period of discernment,
start to live within the community,
divided in two families,
one for men and one for women.
lasts at least six years,
during which they dedicate to the study
of the Holy Scriptures and theology.
They live thanks to their work
within the Arsenal and outside.
They are all searching for the humble holiness of love.
They are all searching for obedience
to learn to live
according to the plans of God.
In some particular cases,
according to the permission of the supervisors,
some people can live their consecration
within their own families.
In our brotherhood,
those who have a vocation for priesthood,
after their theological studies,
ask to be ordained
at the service of the community
and its gift.
Our community is a space
in which the chosen commitment lasts forever
and, when real, it is possible
thanks to the presence of God.
«And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.» (Matthew 19, 29).
