Our Consecrated Life

Foundress of the Institute of Charity

Today we celebrate the Feast Day of our Mother Foundress, Saint Magdalene of Canossa. She writes:

“Considering the Divine Model of the Daughters of Charity, we take the pattern of this charity from the moment and the way he recommended it to us.

He recommended it to us immediately after the Institution of the Eucharist with which, besides signifying our union with Him, by the very nature of the Sacrament, he wanted to indicate, among other things, the union of heart He expects to exist among His followers.

As for the exercise of this love, He commanded His Apostles to love one another as He loved them…”

(Rules…Transc.cit.pg.206)

Saint Magdalene of Canossa, Our Mother Foundress, Pray for us!

Saint Josephine Bakhita, Our Universal Sister, Pray for us!
