The proper renewal of religious institutes depends chiefly on the formation of their members. Religious life brings together Disciples of Christ who should be assisted in accepting ‘this gift of God which the Church has received from her Lord and which by his grace she always safeguards’ (LG 43). The primary end of formation is to permit candidates to the religious life and young professed, first to discover and later to assimilate and deepen that in which religious identity consists. Only under these conditions will the person dedicate herself to God and be inserted into the world as a significant, effective and faithful witness by means of the harmonious fusion of its spiritual, apostolic, doctrinal and practical elements (Directives on Formation).
