Inspired by the teachings of the Church and the charism of Mother Clelia Merloni, the Apostles are driven by the love of God to witness to the Gospel, grow in holiness, and minister to the people of God.

The spirituality of the Apostles is deeply rooted in the love of God and the spousal relationship with Jesus Christ. Through a life of prayer and a commitment to bring the reparative love of Christ to others, especially the poor and marginalized, the Apostles seek to unite their hearts with the Heart of Christ and manifest His love in the world.

Embracing the pierced Heart of Christ as a symbol of God's boundless love, the Apostles go forth in mission, evangelizing others about devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and bringing hope to those in need. Like their foundress, Blessed Clelia Merloni, who ministered to the urban poor during the Industrial Revolution, the Apostles continue to respond to the evolving needs of society with compassion and foresight.

Community life is central to the Apostles' identity, as they come together to live in and for the love of Jesus Christ. Devotion to the Heart of Jesus strengthens their spirituality, enriches their communal life, and guides their mission of service. Through prayer, celebration of the Eucharist, communal recitation of the Liturgy of the Hours, and spiritual renewal practices, the Apostles find nourishment for their souls and strength for their ministry.
