Aside from the collective reform which the Vatican Council II imposed on the Church, the Trinitarian Order started an intense process of renovation, of seeking its identity, of recovering the charism of the Founder and of responding to the signs and challenges of the last quarter of the XX century.
The new Constitutions, approved by the General Chapter of 1983 and confirmed by Rome in 1984, gathers and passes on the foundational charism, shaped in the Rule, to the new historic situation and its challenges, defining the essential elements of the Trinitarian identity:
■ the original charismatic unity of the Trinitarian mystic and service of redemption and mercy. The Most Holy Trinity as an inexhaustible source of Charity which is shown in the service of redemption and mercy: Glory to the Trinity and liberty to the captives.
■ the experience of the Trinity perceiving the Trinitarian vocation as a call to be signs of the mystery of the Christian God giving personal and collective witness that the God of Jesus is Love, Liberty, Communion, Trinity, the God of the brothers in captivity.
■ the service of liberation accomplished in various forms: listening to the new captivities from where the groans are heard again which went to the heart of the founder; being attentive to the brothers whose faith runs the danger of staggering or falling; offering a service of complete liberation to the captive brother in all his dimensions, and develop the work of evangelization, both in mission lands as in countries traditionally christian.
