“To live according to the spirit is to love according to the spirit.”
– St. Francis de Sales
Statement of Commitment
Loving God, I recall your presence within me and among us as I renew my commitment to a life of love and prayer in the spirit of St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal by serving God and others in humility, gentleness and liberty of spirit as Our Blessed Mother Mary did at the Visitation.
As a member of the St. Louis Association of the Christian Faithful, I embrace the call to serve side by side with the Sisters of the Visitation to preserve and promote their Catholic Salesian mission at Visitation Academy to live Jesus in the present and into the future.
I dedicate myself to ongoing, in-depth study of Salesian spirituality and live it with my mind and heart. I dedicate myself also to form and support relationships with my companions, the Academy, and the entire Visitation family so that we may work together collaboratively for the good of all.
Dear Jesus, let your loving heart be with me and guide me and all of us who make this commitment.
