Spirituality of Fr.Wolff- The Founder:

"I want to labour as a giant, always ready for souls"

His whole life was concerned with the greater honour and Glory of God. Undoubtedly he lived the spirit of St.Ignatius. Salient Features of fr.Wolff's Spirituality:

  • Apostolic Availability :- His zeal for the souls made him free for God and others.
  • A fervent zeal for all that concerns greater honour and Glory of God ( Ad majorem Deum Gloria):- In the hurried life of Fr.Wolff's apostolic activity, we read the following prayer in his diary, " Only to God be Glory, I surrender myself completely to God like John the Baptist, strengthen my will that I may serve you and fulfill my task evermore faithfully and to your greater glory"
  • Seeking God's will :- Fr.Wolff himself described his interior surrender, "The soul attaches itself to God to such a degree that it finds pleasure in nothing else but what God requires"
  • Finding God in all things and taste for the divine:- "He who wishes to serve God in everything, to him everything is prayer".
