Missionary Spirituality of Joseph De Piro
study is concerned with the Missionary Spirituality of Joseph De Piro,
founder of the Missionary Society of St. Paul. Attention is given to the
particular culture and Christian tradition in which De Piro grew. The
study proceeds on how De Piro lived the missionary charism by integrating
contemplation and action within his life of prayer and his spirituality
of ministry. Finally there is a pastoral focus on how the Missionary
Society of St. Paul can live out this spirituality today.
