What you should know







Missionaries of Charity Brothers



At the heart of our charism is the gift of seeing, loving and

serving Jesus in the distressing disguise of the poorest of

the poor. Our conviction of the special and real presence

of Jesus in the poor is revealed in the Gospel :

"…in so far as you did this to one of the least

of these brothers of mine, you did it to me"

(Mt 25:40).

Lay Missionaries of Charity

Members adhere to the spirit and charism of

the Missionaries of Charity and make private vows of (conjugal) chastity,

poverty, obedience and wholehearted and free service

to the poorest of the poor – beginning with members of

their own family with the Holy Family of Nazareth

as their special model.

From the beginning, Mother attracted people of

all religions in every part of the world

who wished to have some

part in the work of loving service to God

in the person of the needy.
