“For Vincent, the heart of Jesus was the source of missionary zeal. For Louise, it was the font of a burning charity that was both affective and effective. Hence, “Mission et Charité” have had a central role in the lives of their followers, with different accents, in the Congregation of the Mission and the Daughters of Charity.”

“The emblems of the Congregation of the Mission and the Daughters of Charity both appear to derive from (Louise’s painting above) “The Lord of Charity”.
