“A simple gesture of love and a sign of patience are of more value than all the riches of the world. A simple person who loves God above all and leads a deeply spiritual life lives on a far higher level than one who, though he is a great scholar, is not really spiritually alive.”
- Sent by the Lord (P.M. 11)

Fr. Mathias Wolff our founder summons our spirituality as follows: ‘The spirit who moves us is the same spirit who moved Jesus.’ Moved by the spirit, Jesus went from city to city to bring good news to the poor. He did not himself choose the route he had to travel; it was the spirit who sent him. Moved by the spirit Jesus in turn sent the disciple out ‘to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal (Lk; 9:2). Inspired by the gospel text father Wolff wrote; like the apostles of log ago, so we today are sent out to give education to the young, to administer mercy, to give education to the poor children.

Fr. Mathias Wolff, as son of St. Ignatius, believed in the core of Ignatius Spirituality, “God bestows His Spirit on us. In everything He is near us in love. In everything He works for us. He communicates Himself in it. Therefore learn to find God in everything, love Him in everything and everything in Him. He who wishes to serve God in everything to him everything is prayer – and lived in union with God in and through work”. Hence the whole life of Fr. Mathias Wolff is concerned with the greater honour and glory of God..

So each sister of JMJ is expected to hold on to the guidance of the Holy Spirit like the apostles who through the guidance of the spirit continue to go and move across the boundaries and bring many people closer to God and a life that brings honour and glory to God our father.
