*Ecumenical Spirituality — This banner of the Legion of Good Will is present in all its socio-educational actions, because it is understood as “the cradle of the most generous values that are born of the Soul; the dwelling of the emotions and of the reasoning enlightened by intuition; the atmosphere that embraces everything that transcends the ordinary field of matter and comes from the elevated human sensitivity, such as Truth, Mercy, Morals, Ethics, Honesty, and Brotherly Love.” Extract taken from the best-seller by writer and President of the LBV, Paiva Netto, ‘É Urgent Reeducar!’ [It is Urgent to Re-educate].
