Spirituality: Charity

Nothing that charity can do to help the neighbor is excluded from our Institute, provided that all our service is seen to be spiritual, and that we are quite clear on the point that the service proper to us is the more perfect one, namely the purely spiritual ministries. We should not take up others that are in themselves lower except through necessity, after having given much thought to the question, with much hope and great fruit, and with the permission of the Superiors; and finally, when service in the purely spiritual field is not feasible.
