"The confraternity of the Ladies of Charity sprang from God in order to honor our Lord Jesus Christ as the source and model of all charity." - St. Vincent de Paul
According to St. Vincent, the spirit of an association consists of those virtues which the Ladies of Charity should practice in the corporal and spiritual service of the poor as representing our Lord Jesus Christ. These virtues are humility, simplicity and charity.
