The Daughters of Charity intercede with the saints in their daily round of prayer….

The Daughters of Charity in their daily round of prayer celebrate the various feast days of the Church. In the month of November one of the saints we celebrate is the feast of St Laurence O’ Toole. It is good to remember this man in a special way, not alone because he was the first Archbishop of Dublin but because he was a peace maker.

Peace is one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit and brings joy and love to our lives and the lives of those with whom we live and work.Daily prayers 1

Sisters in community

The Daughters of Charity live in local communities and they vary in size depending on the ministry of the house. In Ireland we have …. houses. There are in Dublin, one house in Cork, one house in Galway, one house in Limerick and two houses in Belfast. There are … houses in Kenya. The Sisters work out together their times for prayer, community and times of celebration. This is done with a view to their ministry of service in parish, prison, hospital, school, or wherever they serve. The Sisters accept one another in faith and they strengthen one another with a view to mission.

Christ is the Rule of the Daughters of Charity (C 8a)

Usually when we think of rules in today’s world we think of images like these…


These images remind the viewer to do or not to do certain things. Do you know the Ten Commandments.? Sometimes these are considered as rules and yes they are…..but when God gave them to Moses he gave them as life giving thoughts to help those who received them to love God and love one another. He gave them to us so we could be free to love and respect ourselves and others.
