The Identity and role of the Provincial Minister/Custos by Brothers Vicar General and Raffaele

 Brotherhood and minority are original features of the charism given to us by the Spirit. They also shape the contemplative and apostolic dimensions of our vocation.
 In the school of the Holy Spirit by living together as brothers, we search for and fulfil God's will in every event and action for the good of the brothers and of the Church.
 To be father - pastor- animator, who walks before the fraternity, guiding it with word and example and at times walking behind the brother who has become lost in order to find him and lead him back to the fraternal hearth.
 To be a teacher of prayer, especially contemplative prayer, which is specific to us.

 To look after the balance between the fraternal life and the many activities.
Be free, serving all, without letting your selves be manipulated by any group but making yourselves like Paul, all things to all.
 Bring joy and enthusiasm to the fraternities, it is this that leads to rebirth.
 Fraternal collaboration between the circumscriptions of the Order, which has the principal purpose of reviving our charism in places where it is passing through a period of crisis.
 Shabbat, to help grow in the circumscription the culture, mentality that one day a week we have the need and right to stop, to have time for ourselves
 To know also how to think of oneself....
 to have a trusted brother.....secretary.......
 as brothers given to each other by the Lord and endowed with different gifts, et us accept one another with a grateful heart.
