THE ORDER OF THE DIVINE LOVE is an ecumenical Community for the Harmonious Development of Humanity and the Earth in Christ. As an Order of brothers and sisters who have dedicated their lives to the service of all people, by a Way of Living in accord with the Universal Law of Divine Love taught by the Christ in Jesus our Way-Shower, the Work of the Gospel to which we have been called in the Spirit is the Sacramental Work of spiritual renewal, consecration and transformation through the restoration of the ancient Christ-Mysteries for the New Age.

The Prophet says, Where there is no vision, the people perish (Prov. 29:18); but to live as people who are both lover and beloved of Life is to live as those who are both lover and beloved of God! Christ says, I Am come that they might have life, and that they might have life more abundant (John 10:10). In the Creative Spirit of God we are called to bring the Life more abundant to all.

The Work of the Order is that of which the Apostle says, My little children of whom I travail in birth again, until Christ be formed in you (Gal. 4:19). Our Work is to enable men and women to discover a new identity, actually our only True Identity -- Christ in us, the hope of glory! (Col. 1:27). Thus we fulfill the need of Humanity and the Earth for a transforming spirituality in the unniversal and indwelling Christ, bearing witness at a time of material-technological greatness to the primacy of the spiritual.

See, Christ is not outside us, but is innately within us all, but locked up,
and in order that Christ might unlock that which is locked up in us,
Christ did become outwardly visible. (Amor Proximi)
