"The Charity of Jesus Crucified Presses Us."
St. Vincent de Paul did not have a spirituality, he had a way.
His way was based on experience, faith, and practical wisdom.
When the Daughters of Charity, Servants of the Sick Poor, were founded, the only recognized
women religious were cloistered nuns. A common rule was drawn up as guidelines for the Daughters of Charity, and
their work among the poor was seen as a genuine vocation.
The original Rules of the Daughters of Charity, Servants of the Sick Poor, and the Particular
Rules for the Sisters of the Parishes, will be followed by the CCMMs. Only one paragraph in the Rules will need to be
changed to reflect the upgraded status of active religious communities of women. The Rules can be found in Paulist Press' Vincent de Paul and Louise de Marillac: Rules, Conferences, and Writings. We highly
recommend purchasing a copy of this book if one is interested in the CCMM charism.
Conciliar Documents will also be studied
for the sake of writing statutes which are appropriate for a modern community. Those living the charism will be writing
such a document.
The CCMM sisters will go where they are needed, strengthened by the sacraments and their prayer times.
