The international website of the Daughters of Charity presents a picture of their new leadership team.

The Daughters of Charity gathered in their international Assembly to explore the theme “The boldness of Charity for New Missionary Momentum”.

The following is from an article providing an analysis of the theme of boldness prior to the Assembly.

The mission that we have been talking about is not a mission in which the Daughters of Charity are protagonists and everyone else is a “walk-on”, a type of anonymous chorus that never has an important role to play. Rather we are dealing with a shared mission. It is not “the mission of the Daughters of Charity” but rather the mission of Christ that is shared by all Christians.

We recall here the famous words of Mother Guillemin: Religious[32] today are obliged to move

• from a situation of possession to a posture of insertion;

• from a position of authority to a position of collaboration;

•from a position of religious superiority to a sense of communion;

• from a position of human inferiority to an honest participation in life; • from a position of concern for moral conversion to a missionary concern. [33]
