Thanks for your comments on Words for Life Charism article and for sharing your experiences of having felt that special gift of God through us. Specifically, the charism of the Congregation is “the call to make the love of God as shown in the incarnation a real and tangible presence in the world today.” (Constitution of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, Art. #2) What we strive to do in all our actions and our total being is to be Jesus present, real, felt here and now. – here,- where we live and work, and now – in this present moment.
