The Government of the Institute

“The exercise of authority is always a sharing in God’s governance, through ministry of the Church. It originates from the special mandate of Christ who said to the apostles: As the father has sent me I also send you”. (Art. 141, Constitutions BSDP)

“Authority in the religious life is a gift of the Spirit given in order to collaborate with the community and with the individual members, so they might live in communion with the will of God.” (Art. 142, Constitutions BSDP)
