"Love One Another as I Have Loved You"
Christ's spousal call of love has led each Sister to this community and has bound us together by our common consecration of the vows and common mission of sharing the beauty, goodness, and truth of our rich faith. This common foundation blossoms into a healthy and active community life. The Church values this stable form of communal living so highly as to consider it the second of the elements essential to religious life.
United in Christ, one in prayer, and dedicated to ongoing formation, a stable community naturally forms each Sister, allowing her to more fully resemble Christ, her Spouse. In community, each individual is presented the opportunity to cultivate all the human virtues - respect, kindness, sincerity, self-control, tactfulness, a sense of humor and spirit of generosity - and to develop the ability to see life through Mary's eyes of faith. By the mutual assistance of true friendship super-naturalized by divine charity, each member of the community is daily built up and aided toward a more complete union with Christ in this life and accompanied on the journey toward eternity.
O Mary, Mother of God,
form us into the image of your Divine Son!
