Charity inspires our life
According to the very words of the founder, Jean-Léon Le Prevost, the first work and the essential business among us is to love God. This charity for God must inspire our whole life as consecrated persons and apostles; it must make us men of the absolute, of true and pure love.
We have three big points to back up:
In our religious family, community life is still expressed by the community of prayer. For if life among brothers entails the sharing of sorrows and joys, our union finds its supreme expression in liturgical prayer.
We must tend to always put our work, our feelings, our life in common,so that the bond of true charity does not slacken between us.
The Religious of St. Vincent de Paul seek the fullness of charity within a community, a true family gathered together in the name of the Lord. This life led in common recalls the primitive Church where all had only one heart and one soul.
In the religious family of Father Le Prevost we will find this community of life, prayer and apostolate, this simplicity and this communicative joy which unites minds and hearts.
