“They are before God, bearing the sign, the kind of character proper to our Institute,
the vows common to all its members, the firm habit of the same virtues.
We are linked to them by the bonds of a special charity.
They are still our brothers and we are theirs. They now live in our mother-house, our main residence. The prayers and the love they retain for us will one day draw us to them and weshall live in our place of rest together with them.” (Letter of Founder to Fr. Courtès, 22 July 1828)
