Restitution: the lifestyle of the Sermig

Material goods, personal abilities, professionalism, money if made object of gift, service, sharing, are touched by the life of God, who is love, and therefore are returned to the purpose for which they were created. [...] The mentality of restitution educates us not to remain indifferent to the problems that affect man and his existence, be they local or international problems, but to address them by giving voice to those who suffer, creating a movement around them of opinion that appeals to the deepest values of man and seeks concrete answers together. [...] The mentality of restitution invites us not to "do" or "give", but to a way of "being". Realizing oneself in the gift of oneself is a primary need of every man.
