This article presents the reality of the religious Brotherhood as a complete vocation within a Church as a communion of believers and in which the Spirit gives rise to specific charisms. In the heart of this vocation is the call of Jesus to fraternity, to live together. This call finds expression in both mystical and prophetic dimensions of the community of religious Brothers. Given that this vocation has not always been understood, the article offers explanations, challenges to overcome and evangelic icons which clarify it. The article concludes by presenting the wealth and possibility which surrounds the vocation of the religious Brotherhood.
