The aim of our lives is to be united with Christ through Mary, the Servant of the Lord. To achieve this goal, we follow the evangelical counsels. It is a special way of imitating Christ, who himself lived in chastity “I am not alone, for my Father is with me” (Jn 16:32); in poverty  “though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich” (2 Cor 8:9); and in obedience “my food is to do the will of him who sent me” (Jn 4:34).

The evangelical counsels help us to transform everything what in our human hearts calls against God, such as the lust of flesh, the lust of eyes, and the pride of life.

While experiencing those lusts within ourselves, through the vows we dedicate ourselves to Christ, so that He can transform us.

An authentic spiritual life requires that everyone, in all the diverse vocations, regularly dedicate, every day, appropriate times to enter deeply into silent conversation with him by whom they know they are loved, to share their very lives with him and to receive enlightenment to continue on the daily journey. It is an exercise which requires fidelity, because we are constantly being bombarded by the estrangements and excesses which come from today’s society (…). At times fidelity to personal and liturgical prayer will require a true effort not to allow oneself to be swallowed up in frenetic activism. Otherwise it will be impossible to bear fruit. “No more than a branch can bear fruit of itself apart from the vine can you bear fruit apart from me” (Jn 15:4). (Starting Afresh from Christ, 25)


Mother of Great Abandonment, Humble Servant of the Lord, I give myself to you without reservation

– so that you will lead me to your Son, my Bridegroom.
