“...A Son of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, is a man on fire with love, who spreads its flames wherever he goes. He desires mightily and strives by all means possible to set the whole world on fire with God’s love. Nothing daunts him; he delights in privations, welcomes work, embraces sacrifices, smiles at slander, and rejoices in suffering. His only concern is how he can best follow Jesus Christ and imitate Him in working, suffering, and striving constantly and single-mindedly for the greater glory of God and the salvation of souls.”
May we, too, as Daughters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, live by these words!
St. Anthony Mary Claret, Archbishop of Santiago, founder of the Sons of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and Apostle of the Holy Rosary

Come now, loving Mother, let us lose no time. Here I am: dispose of me as you will, for you know that I am wholly yours. I trust that you will do this out of your great kindness, pity, and mercy, and I ask you this through the love you bear for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. ~ St. Anthony Mary Claret
