PRODUCTION STATUS: FINAL REVIEW
Background. In 1994 a new religious order of priests and brothers called Miles Christi was founded in Argentina with the mission to help the Catholic Laity achieve holiness by providing Ignatian spiritual retreats, spiritual direction, and other spiritual support. In 1999 two priests and a brother from this young order were sent to the United States with the assignment to set up a permanent community there in order to a assist the American Catholic faithful in their ongoing struggle against relativism, secularism, and consumerism.
In other words, Miles Christi came to the U.S. to help Americans be holy.
