Miles Christi professes a filial devotion to the Mater Dolorosa (Sorrowful Mother), “whom we rejoice to invoke by the title of Causa nostræ lætitiæ, Cause of our Joy. Precisely in her excruciating acceptance of the will of God over her Son, the Blessed Virgin was able to remain firm and unshakable and thus become the cause of our joy” (Const. 24).
Our Order has confident recourse to its Patron, the Glorious Patriarch Saint Joseph, as a “model of the interior life, of total fidelity, of prompt and cheerful obedience, of service to Jesus and Mary, and of self-sacrificing diligence” (Const. 112).
Miles Christi gives special veneration to St. Michael the Archangel, Prince of the Heavenly Host.
