In his earthly life, Jesus established a special relationship with some of his disciples inviting them not only to welcome the Kingdom of God, but also to place their existence at the service of this cause, leaving everything to adhere to his way of life.
This is the Gospel foundation of religious vows: Chastity, Poverty and Obedience.
“Consecrated chastity, when truly lived for love of the Kingdom of the heavens, frees the heart of man and is a sign and incentive for charity and a special source of spiritual fertility in the world.”
“Following Mary’s example, the first among the humble and the poor of the Lord, the Daughters of the Immaculate Conception live out the vow of poverty with particular commitment, voluntarily embracing it to place ourselves in the sequela of Christ.”
“With obedience, we Daughters of the Immaculate Conception offer to God our Will as a sacrifice, thus uniting ourselves in a more solid and secure way to the salvific Will of God.”
