    Provincial's Message

    Life is expressed in actions. Actions speak louder than words. Time spent with inner thoughts, our actions during the course of the day, the way we treated people form the expression of the day. Meaningful expressions will hold love and commitment eternally. Our life to be our message then we need to make decisions with full awareness and radical honesty and follow what brings us the inner happiness, joy, love and true fulfilment. Faith and beliefsystem of a person, the values, culture and the goals of person will create a legacy of a person, which will radiate as a message ‘light to the world’. Faith in God, believing in Christ Jesus inculcating Biblical values, and following the Christian traditions and culture and doing the work of Jesus along with St. Montfort and Mary will be the message every single Montfortian Brother is expected to live. The institute and the institutions will be merely the instrument for a Brother to attain his holiness in Christ Jesus in whom the true joy, happiness and fulfilment lies.
