The links are from a website run by priests of the Passionists Congregation.

St. Paul of the Cross wrote the rules of the Congregation in December 1720;
and in 1725, Pope Benedict XIII granted Paul the permission to form his congregation.
Paul and his brother, John Baptist, were ordained by the pope on the same occasion.
In 1769 Clement XIV granted full rights to the Passionists as enjoyed by the other religious orders,
except that he did not make them a full order but a congregation.
The congregation historically has had two primary goals: missionary work and contemplative life,
with an attempt to blend the two. Its founder had attempted to combine aspects of the reflective orders,
such as the Trappist monks, together with the dynamic orders, such as the Jesuits.
