Who We Are En Español: Iesus Caritas
The Fraternity is a brotherhood formed by five to seven priests who meet once every month for Scripture sharing, contemplative prayer before the Eucharist, and a shared review of life with ample time for some friendly conversation and fellowship, usually over a meal.

East Aurora, NYRetreat During the Month of Nazareth
It's not too late to sign up...The Month of Nazareth offers a priest a more extended and deeper experience of Fraternity life. While practicing the core components of fraternity life, those participating explore in a contemplative way their lives, ministry, and their relationship with God in the spirit of Nazareth. As the Directory points out, The Month is a sharing of fraternal life at every level: prayer, reflection, manual work, leisure. etc. Ideally, it becomes a turning point in the ministry of a priest and his commitment to Jesus and to Fraternity. The Month remains the ideal for all members who belong to a fraternity. Knowing that individual fraternities can be enriched by the presence of one of its members at the Month, a goal might be to have your fraternity sponsor a member, assisting in arranging coverage for that priest's responsibilities at home

Prayer of Abandonment
I abandon myself into your hands; do with me what you will.
Whatever you may do, I thank you:
I am ready for all, I accept all.
Let only your will be done in me, and in all your creatures.
I wish no more than this, O Lord.
Into your hands I commend my soul;
offer it to you
with all the love of my heart,
for I love you, Lord,
and so need to give myself,
to surrender myself into your hands,
and with boundless confidence,
