April 26, With Adelaide: Our Charism

The DHM charism was born in the midst of the French Revolution. The struggle for justice became a pretext for acquiring power and destroying the Church as an institution.

It was in this troubled atmosphere that our founders searched for a way of living their rootedness in God and faithfulness to the Church. They sought to do this in an external atmosphere that could favour the worship and service of the Lord.

However, they heard the call to live their consecration to God in fidelity to the Church in France, without exterior signs, thus enabling them to witness to the Lord's saving 1604927 presence through the situation in which the Church found Herself at the time.

It was the call to live one's fidelity to God through an inner conversion, an adherence of the heart, a deep interior conviction of the presence of God in their lives.

... the DHM family would be bound not by exterior signs but by their deep spiritual bond of commitment to God, communion with one another and freedom to serve those in need. Adelaide de Cice and the Constitutions of the Society draw our attention to those suffering material and spiritual distress.
