“The Daughters of Charity were chosen to give spiritual manna, the spirit of God, to the poor. Where do they receive him in order later to communicate him? In Holy Communion, my daughters. Pay attention, please, and consider the greatness of God’s plan in your regard. He wants you, poor young women without ability or studies, to cooperate with him in communicating his spirit. Oh! my daughters, please never neglect this grace. But come close to this fire to be enkindled with it and then, through your charity and good example, to attract the others. You should realize, my daughters, that the principal strength of the Daughters of Charity is to communicate well.” (SV IX, 332-333).
