Glory to you O Trinity and liberty to the captives
The Spirituality of the Order of the Most Holy Trinity and of the Captives is epitomized in the Order’s motto, Trinitati Gloria, Captivis Libertas, and in its title, Ordo Sanctae Trinitatis et (redemptionis) Captivorum.
Both the motto and the title synthesize the two basic components of the Order’s spirituality: God-Trinity and redemptive charity. These two constituents—Trinity and redemption—are so embedded in the rule and tradition of the Order to clearly indicate that the essence of its spirituality consists in rendering glory to God-Trinity through a love which is directed toward those who are unjustly deprived of their freedom or damaged in their dignity as sons and daughters of God.
The members of the Order consecrate themselves in a special way to the Trinity and, in their ministry of charity and redemption, take Christ the Redeemer as their primary model.
