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)
That we may hear and accept the gospel call to repent.
For him who will die first among us.
O God, in you alone is my hope... (Paris, 10/24/1835)
