"Becoming ... a religious woman is not primarily our own decision.... Rather it is the response to a call and to a call of love."
Pope Francis, Address to Seminarians and Novices, July 6, 2013
The Sisters of the Divine Redeemer are called to place their whole life at the service of the Redemption.
Our vocation as Sisters of the Divine Redeemer enables us to live the charism of Mother Alphonse Marie today. It is our task to enable people to realize that the fulfillment of the salvation that Christ has won for us is already happening. Our lives are grounded in God`s love which is revealed to us in Jesus Christ. In this way, we become capable of living from this Mystery of Redemption in freedom and joy. In the Original Rule our Foundress says: The Sisters of the Divine Redeemer are to serve Christ in the poor and in the sick bearing in mind these words “Whatever you did to least of my brethren, you did to me“ (Mt 2:40).
In order to serve, just as our Foundress Mother Alphonse Marie did, it is necessary to be penetrated with the spirit of the Gospel. With the following words she gave us the fundamental spiritual principles: “The spirit of the Daughters of the Divine Redeemer should be the spirit of Jesus Christ. Their lives should be completely modeled on his and take the direction from his life. His spirit should so totally animate and penetrate them that it becomes apparent in their words and actions. Each Sister should be able to say with the Apostle, ´The life I live now is not my own; Christ is living in me´ (Gal 2: 20), so that the life of Jesus is evident in her whole being“ (cf. Original Rule 1, III).
