We imitate the joy, simplicity, and “Deo Gratias” of Saint Felix of Cantalice whose name Divine Providence has chosen for our Congregation. His life exemplifies for us the gift of integrating the spirit of contemplation with our apostolic involvement. (Response to Love, Constitutions of the Felician Sisters)
The Saint whose name the Felician Sisters adopted was born in 1513 in Cantalice, a little village not far from Rome.
With his joyful countenance and thankful “Deo Gratias” to everyone he met, Felix the Questor became a familiar figure in Rome where he spent forty years carrying his sack to receive donations for the order.
