LITTLE SERVANTS OF THE SACRED HEART

A Congregation of women who,
have offered their life as an oblation,
dedicate themselves to all the deeds of Christian charity

The Little Servants of the Sacred Heart
were born as a Congregation in 1915 from the heart of a great bishop
of Città di Castello
CARLO LIVIERO
powerful in words and deeds
extraordinary witness of the Gospel
and a giant of charity

As a Congregation, we can say, we were “conceived”,
at Gallio, where the Parish Priest, Carlo Liviero (1890-1900), in order to answer to the pastoral and charitable needs of his parish, started of
the group of Orsoline,
a first religious community

His charisma as founder, however, was implemented
at Città di Castello with the group of Angeline. Some of these good girls, generous, ready for everything, with the precise aim
to exercise the most authentic Christian love,
made themselves available to begin
the Hospice Sacred Heart,
an institution that today we can call a «Home for orphans»

The name
“Little Servants of the Sacred Heart”
expresses our identity of women,
who, in humility,
put themselves at the service of all,
especially the little ones

our Congregation dedicated to the Sacred Heart (that Heart which opens up and gives itself as a gift) finds its charismatic foundation in the icon of the pierced Heart of Jesus, rich:

* in mercy
* in meekness
* in bounty
* in compassion
* in creativity and zeal

In the mystery of the Pierced Heart
the Founder was contemplating
the thoughts and the feelings,
the measure and the universality
of the love of Christ

Here he has drawn the strength of love that made him a giant in charity.

In order to know the fundamental elements of the Charisma
that characterizes our Congregation,
It is necessary to recall the Rules of 1916,
that are and remain “a source of light” for us,
born from the heart of Carlo Liviero

Everything starts from Jesus’ Heart,
of which we are Servants
