That our dedication to the vows entail an act of faith whereby we respond to God's call to give ourselves completely with all our talents, abilities and powers to him, to the Church and to the Congregation. (Art. 13)
That we may be more aware of each other's giftedness and of our own responsibility to develop our gifts for the good of our Community.
Merciful God, grant me the help of our holy grace; complete in me your work of salvation -- reconciliation with you... (Paris, 1/10/1836)
