Trinitarian History
In 1198, John of Matha was inspired to found a community dedicated to the Trinity in order to share the Trinity's love through Redemptive Charity.
John of Matha and Felix of Valois dedicated their lives to raising money for ransom to free Christian slaves during the Crusades.   They also worked in hospitals and helped the poor.

John of Matha and the Trinitarians placed their needs under our Heavenly Mother's guidance.  They honored her with the title, "Our Lady of Good Remedy."  When in need, for whatever reason, especially when in difficulty, invoke the aid of Our Lady of Good Remedy.

DEAR LADY OF GOOD REMEDY, source of unfailing help, thy compassionate heart knows a remedy for every affliction and misery we encounter in life. Help me with thy prayers and intercession to find a remedy for my problems and needs, especially for... (Indicate your special intentions here).

On my part, O loving Mother, I pledge myself to a more intensely Christian lifestyle, to a more careful observance of the laws of God, to be more conscientious in fulfilling the obligations of my state in life, and to strive to be a source of healing in this broken world of ours.

Dear Lady of Good Remedy, be ever present to me, and through thy intercession, may I enjoy health of body and peace of mind, and grow stronger in the faith and in the love of thy Son, Jesus.

Hail, Mary, full of Grace, the Lord is with Thee.  Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of they womb, Jesus.  Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

V. Pray for us, O Holy Mother of Good Remedy,
R. That we may deepen our dedication to thy Son, and make the world alive with His Spirit.

On September 8, 1762, Teresa Cucchiari followed her own special call by the Trinity and received the Trinitarian habit.  She became the Foundress of the female branch of the Order of the Most Holy Trinity.  Teresa and the first two women to join her carried out the charism of the Order, namely, Redemptive Charity.  These were of service to women and children living in the small towns of the hills of Avezzano, Italy.  Their work was done at the urging of Cardinal Mark Anthony Colonna.

The Cardinal saw the need to help the women and mothers and teach their children about God. This was truly a unique and innovative type of ministry for its time.

Over the years, this ministry included not only catechesis, but developed into caring for children in orphanages, helping the sick, and establishing schools for those who otherwise would not have access to an education.
In 1920, Mother Teresa Franza brought the message and charism of the Trinity to the United States.  She was a kind and willing person who chose to promote education for all.

Today, the Sisters of the Most Holy Trinity still follow the example of Mother Teresa in Italy, United States, Madegascar, and Philippines.  We share the common call of bringing redemptive love of the Holy Trinity to all.  Whatever we do, we do in the Name of the Most Holy Trinity.
