After her husband’s death, Louise helped Father Vincent de Paul in his work among the poor. Up until that time, charity for the poor had been unorganized. Together, they began a new type of religious order, the Daughters of Charity, who worked directly with the poor in an organized way to help improve their condition. She said: “We must develop the practice of making frequent acts of the desire to know God and ourselves.”
