Paulines Serving the Poorest of the Poor

  • The Constitutions of the Missionaries of Charity define the poorest of the poor. Paulines can also use this definition for the Spiritual Works of Mercy - Mother Teresa told some of our sisters this:

  • feeding the hungry: not only with food but also with the Word of God;

  • giving drink to the thirsty: not only for water, but for knowledge, peace, truth, justice, and love;

  • clothing the naked: not only with clothes, but also with human dignity;

  • giving shelter to the homeless: not only a shelter made of bricks but a heart that understands, that covers, that loves;

  • nursing the sick and dying: not only the body, but also the mind and spirit
