«Io pure sotto il nome di Missionaria devo imitar Cristo aspergendo di sale tutti i cuori che mi circondano e chiunque avvicinerò colle parole e coi buoni esempi, prendendo occasione da tutto per edificare. Oh sale della sapienza e grazie di Dio scendete a purificarmi in me stessa per la bontà del vostro Cuore Divino, acciò possa davvero aiutare gli altri a purificarsi onde tutti acquistino quell’aurea pace ed unione d’Amore con voi, mio Dio, e voi possiate in tutti deliziarvi.»
S. Francesca Cabrini, Pensieri e Propositi
Buon mese della pace!
«I also, under the name of Missionary, must imitate Christ by sprinkling with salt all the hearts that surround me and whoever I approach with words and good examples, taking occasion from everything to edify. Oh salt of wisdom and graces of God, come down to purify me in myself through the goodness of your Divine Heart, so that I may truly help others to purify themselves so that all may acquire that golden peace and union of Love with you, my God, and you may delight in all».
S. Francis Cabrini, Thoughts and Intentions
Happy month of peace!
Our Cabrinian charism
Let us continue spreading the charism of Mother Cabrini “to the ends of the earth”.
As vowed religious women, we MSCs have responded to God’s call in our lives. In rhythms of dialog, silence, prayer, faith-sharing, work and leisure, we live co-responsibly in community as adult women committed to serving those in need, particularly, women, children, frail elders and immigrants.
Cabrini Lay Missionary
We are women and men who desire to live out their Christian Baptismal commitment as a special call from God, in order to grow spiritually, to witness Gospel values, and to be agents of transformation in the world. CLMs hear and respond to their call by committing themselves to embrace and give witness to the love of the Heart of Jesus, according to the living legacy and spirit of St. Frances Xavier Cabrini.
As Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus our life and spirit flow from this missionary identity expressed in prayer, community and in ministry. Every vowed member participates fully in this identity. At the same time, laity are invited and encouraged to be Co-Sharers in Mission as Cabrini Lay Missionaries, Cabrini Companions, collaborators, volunteers and loyal friends. Together, we strive to live the gospel values which we learn from the life of Frances Cabrini.
