Overview

Divine mercy has caned us to a Community that has a two-fold end: The first and most important is our own sanctification; the second, works of charity, viz: the care of the sick, the aged, the orphans, and the education and training of youth. The first end is obtained by faithfully observing- the simple and perpetual vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, according to the Rule of the Third Order of St. Francis, as approved by his Holiness Pope Leo X. for religious living in community. The second end will be obtained by observing the special duties required by their work in the different institutions of the Community. The following constitutions were made to help the sisters to obtain both ends. They define the obligations imposed upon them by the holy Rule and serve at the same time as a guide in the practice of virtues peculiar to a religious life.
