What Is the Role of the Pauline Brother?
The Pauline Brother participates in every aspect of the Society's spiritual and apostolic life. He consecrates himself to God by taking the vows of poverty, chastity, obedience and fidelity to the Pope. He gives his time, his talent, his life to spreading the Gospel through the media apostolate while sustaining and being sustained by his fellow religious in a vibrant community life. His work takes the priests' preaching of the Gospel and multiplies it thousands of times over. The brothers of the congregation participate in every aspect of the media ministry. As bookstore directors, editors, artists, writers, TV directors etc. the brothers spread the Gospel of Christ by making it attractive and intelligible to a world that needs the Good News like never before.

Community life and prayer.
The spiritual life of the Brother is nourished by the Way, Truth and Life methodology of Blessed James Alberione the founder
of the Society
of St. Paul. The Brother nurtures his soul with the Eucharist and the scriptures in order to lead a Christ centered-life.
This Christ-centered life was exemplified by Mary,
whom the members of the Society honor with the title Queen of Apostles
, and by St. Joseph the special patron of the Brothers in the congregation. The Brothers make Christ relevant to the
cultures of the world in the twenty-first century just as St. Paul did in the first century. They especially try to master
an understanding of the universal
"culture of communications" and they strive to be "St. Paul alive today."
