Like Jesus, the priest and the victim, who was anointed to proclaim the good news to the poor, each SdP by incarnating the spirit of the congregation becomes a bearer of divine love and mercy to the poor, the abandoned, the sick and the aged.

The growth and the expansion of the congregation founded by Blessed Savina was quite amazing. Besides Italy, she was invited to Brazil to continue the mission of Christ. Thus she realized her dream to serve the Universal Church. Soon after, the new mission fields were opened to the Sisters of the Poor in Argentina, Philippines, Paraguay, Ecuador, India, and Germany. Today, it has grown and flourished all over the world.
