That we may recognize the very special manifestation of God's love made to our founders and to all who have followed them in the Congregation of the Resurrection because we have received Christ's invitation to leave all and follow him. (Art.2)
For fidelity to our charism, our vows and the spirit of our founders.
For our minor and major seminaries, the directors and students.
With the best of intentions I undertake these two tasks for your glory (summary of thoughts and confession), and for the good of others, and in order to be completely reconciled with you...Most gracious and all powerful Lord, help me to accomplish these tasks successfully and soon! (Paris, 9/29/1834)
