O Great Saint Joseph
O Great Saint Joseph, you were completely obedient to the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Obtain for me the grace to know the state of life that God in His providence has chosen for me. Since my happiness on earth, and perhaps even my final happiness in heaven, depends on this choice, let me not be deceived in making it. Obtain for me the light to know God's Will, to carry it out faithfully, and to choose the vocation which will lead me to a happy eternity. Amen.

Characteristics of a Marian Sister
She will desire to blend the contemplative union with Jesus that Mary's life beautifully exemplifies, with humble self-sacrificing service of Christ and His people, striving to be Mary's hands and heart at work in the world.
She will be attracted to the ideal of working all for Jesus, all through Mary, at the heart of the Church, and will desire to be a unifying force at the heart of the Church through worshiping in both forms of the Latin Rite.
In short, a young woman with a cheerful, flexible disposition who deeply loves the Church; a young woman with an abiding appreciation of the liturgy and a Marian spirituality, who has a sense of adventure and a strong family spirit, is a young woman who may have a call to join us in making visible the invisible reality of God's Infinite Love.
