THE THOURET FOUNDATION
It is inspired by the charism and missionary tradition of the Sisters of Charity of St. John Antida Thouret. Its style of intervention is based on real proximity.
Its biblical reference icon is Matthew 25: 31-46: “I was hungry … thirst …. I was a stranger … sick … prisoner. Every time you did these things to one of these younger brothers of mine, you did it to me. ”
This Gospel passage, in light of the charism inherited by Saint Giovanna Antida Thouret from the Church, her daughters and lay friends, is a concrete response to today’s world, indifferent, individualistic, opportunistic. We are all invited to make a choice through this “Culture of solidarity”, in order to contribute to the progress of a new, alternative, just and supportive humanity.
The inspirational and operative lines according to Santa Giovanna Antida are these:
“To teach the poor to know, love and serve the Lord is to do in part what the Savior of the world has come to do on earth.”
“Do not consider that Jesus Christ in the person of the poor.
Always serve them as you would serve Jesus Christ himself.
We will always consider them as our brothers and our fellow men before God. ”
“We have heard the voice of our neighbor that is found everywhere, we have heard the voice of the poor, who are the members of Jesus Christ and our brothers: in whatever country they are, they must be equally dear to us.”
