That, in freely obliging ourselves by the vow of chastity to perfect continence within the celibate life, we may achieve a complete union of our life with the Risen Christ and express our love for him. (Art. 16)
For all those who have asked our prayers; for those we have promised to pray for; for those for whom we have a responsibility to pray.
I need to pray for...a complete rebirth, pure love and unwavering hope... (Paris, 1/8/1836)
