The Three Dimensions of CLCCLC is a community on mission, and desires to follow Jesus Christ more closely and to work with Him for the Building of the Kingdom.
CLC is a vocation to a way of life which strives for continuing personal and social growth which is spiritual, human and apostolic. Thus CLC is also a process of growth through which members, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit and with the help of others, are formed so as to respond to the love of God freely. We recognize that there are three integrated dimensions in CLC: Ignatian Spirituality, Apostolic Mission and Community of Life.
The 5 Qualities of Members of CLC
We strive to develop the following five qualities drawn from the Spiritual Exercises:
We reverence God our Lord especially by being open to the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Consequently we are to maintain an attitude of reverence for ourselves and for all our brothers and sisters as children of God.
In imitation of Mary, “a woman wrapped in silence”, we strive to maintain not only external silence but also silence of the heart so that we can listen to and internalize what God is speaking to us.
