The Tertianship Sisters and the Novice in front or our first house for the blind in Paderborn.
Let us love one another,
so that with one mind we may profess the
Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit –
Trinity – one in substance and undivided.
Divine Liturgy of S. John Chrysostom
Come, Holy Spirit,
and renew the face of the earth
Breathe in me, O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy.
Act in me, O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy.
Draw my heart, O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy.
Strengthen me, O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy.
Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy.
Amen. (S. Augustin)
Maria’s FIAT is our fundamental disposition; her MAGNIFICAT the expression of our joyous consecration.

Let us imitate the meekness of Jesus, his humility, his love, his mildness, his zeal for souls and God’s honor, his spirit of penance. 1855
The cross is the real test of faith, the true foundation and source of hope, the perfect refinement of love, in a word, the way to heaven. 1859
It is precisely the cross which Jesus offers us which we ought to embrace with great willingness and not choose our own crosses. 1843
We must pray for love of the cross. Then frequently we shall see things in an entirely different light. 1855
With a joyful heart endeavor to accept little daily annoyances out if love for God, swallowing them like water. Try it. (1877
In all suffering God sends us he has his wise designs, and to those who love him everything turns out for the best. 1878
