Holiness is,
simply a matter of love.

A love united to a Christ who is in a state of love, of redemption.

Idente is derived from the Gospel command: “Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to all nations” (Mk 16:15).

It means to be a walker with Christ and to identify with Him, above all, in his confession of the heavenly Father.

The Institute Id of Christ the Redeemer, idente missionaries is an institute of consecrated life of pontifical right, founded by Fernando Rielo Pardal on June 29, 1959 in Tenerife (Spain).

The charism: to live holiness by means of a common ascetical and mystical exam.
Its apostolic mission: above all, the encounter with the youth and the dialogue with intellectuals for the defense of the revealed truth.
It is based on three evangelical principles:

I. The call to holiness: “Be holy as your heavenly Father is holy” (Mt 5:48).
II. The promotion of community life: “when two or more are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Mt 18:20).
III. The priority dedication to the evangelizing mission: “Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to all creation” (Mk 16:15).

Aspiration to holiness…

“‘Be therefore perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.'” (Mt 5:48)

…lived in common

“When two or more are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” (Mt 18:20)

Apostolic mission

“Go into all the world and proclaim the Good News to all creation.” (Mk 16:15)

Defense of the Magisterio

Go and make disciples of all nations… teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Mt 28:19-20).

I pray to God that the members of the institution will be characterized by joy, a joy in all things that is not like the fleeting joys of this world. I want them to grow with that mystical joy to such a degree that they see the earth from heaven and not heaven from earth.
