"This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another"
-John 13:35

It is through fraternal charity, principally lived in communal life, that the Sisters live in full communion with the love Jesus has for all mankind. Following Saint John, they receive the gift of Mary and take her into their home, asking her to bring about this fraternal communion by being their mother and the mother of all through them.
The Services in Fraternal Life
The Sisters desire to cooperate joyfully in doing the daily chores of communal life. This cooperation in the common good through fraternal services bears witness to charity and poverty.
