Community life is a challenging opportunity to make concrete one’s union with God by relating to each Sister in a spirit of caring, sharing, and bearing. Each one has her strengths and weaknesses; each is a handpicked spouse of Christ.
“Gathered in the name of the Lord, animated by the Holy Spirit, and following the Mother of God and the primitive Church, the community seeks to live united in ‘one heart and mind’, so to form an authentic religious family.” (Constitutions)
Convinced of the presence of the Lord Jesus in our midst, we join in the effort of community work. Together, we share our meals, reflect upon the common good, and enjoy recreation. A give and take of Vitamin H (humor!) each day helps to keep all kinds of things away!
Although each Sister sacrifices some of the joyful aspects of her femininity for an even greater Love, as a woman, she has not buried herself. She imitates, meditates, serves, contemplates, and loves Jesus Christ with all her heart and her entire being. As a result of her consecration and dedication to His Love, her whole existence takes on a more complete growth as a woman. (Fr. Falco Thuis, O. Carm.)
