« The pilgrim Church is missionary by her very nature, since it is from the mission of the Son and the mission of the Holy Spirit that she draws her origin, in accordance with the decree of God the Father. » (Ad gentes/On the Mission Activity of the Church, n°2)
 
 INTRODUCTION

When Jesus encounters individuals on the way, he invites some of them to follow him. He calls them to be his apostles and his disciples. The Gospel records these vocational accounts. Along the shores of the Sea of Galilee Peter and Andrew encounter the man from Nazareth. Jesus addresses Peter and says to him, « Come and follow me ». Accompanying Jesus is an adventure that leads us on paths uncharted, but whose goal is the Kingdom of God.

From the beginnings of the consecrated life, men and women have lived out their commitment by the religious vows of poverty, obedience, and chastity. We also, in our day, are called to follow the one who surrendered everything out of love. « Come and follow me ». Jesus continues to invite men and women today.
