St. Paul of the Cross

Saint Paul of the Cross gathered companions to live together and to proclaim the Gospel to all. Keenly aware of the evils that aflicted the people of his time, he never tired of insisting that the most effective remedy is the Passion of Jesus, the greatest and most overwhelming work of God's love. With the power of the Cross, which is the wisdom of God, the Passionist Religious are given strength to discern and remove the causes of human suffering. For this reason, their mission aims at evangelizing others by means of the Word of the Cross, so that all may come to know Christ and the power of His resurrection, may share in His sufferings and, becoming like Him in His death, may be united with Him in glory. Each Passionist Religious, Priest or Brother, takes part in this apostolate according to his gifts, resources and ministries.
