The Congregation of the Servants of Jesus and Mary (SJM) is a religious order of Priests and Brothers. Therefore, all her members make the three vows of the Evangelical Counsels (Orders with Vows).
The concrete religious life of the SJM is based upon the spirit of St. Ignatius of Loyola, whose motto "Omnia ad maiorem Dei Gloriam" (All Things For the Greater Glory of God) is the basic motive of all of the activities of each member (Ignatian Spirituality).
The daily renewal of the personal consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a further hinge of the spirituality of the Congregation (Daily consecration); likewise a special devotion and love of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament (The Eucharist).
The SJM consciously celebrates the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in both the new ordinary form, the forma ordinaria, as well as in the forma extraordinaria. The priests choose between the both forms according to the criteria of which is expected in any particular circumstance to lead to the greater glory of God and the salvation of souls (Liturgy).
In theological questions, the SJM stands in unconditional fidelity to the Papal Magesterium. The SJM rejects any opposition between "pre-conciliar" and "post-consiliar" teaching (Theological Vision).
As a community whose roots lie in the Scouting movement, the SJM makes a conscious effort to live a simple lifestyle in questions of the daily routine (Roots in Scouting).
