Blessed Francisco Maria Greco
In1893 our Founder Blessed Greco, who was at that time a deacon, sought souls “Burning with love for the Sacred Hearts” in order to “make Them known, loved, and glorified” by a life of total consecration and tireless zeal. From these sources flow our specific spirituality and mission in the Church. As religious Sisters, we are motivated by the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
In light of Blessed Greco’s inspiration, we are called to live a life “Of Christian spirituality intensely, inspired by the very sentiments of the mind of Christ Jesus and of the attentive and loving heart of His Mother Mary”.
“It is before the Most Blessed Sacrament that I found the Love of Jesus and the Power of His love”
Blessed Francesco Maria Greco, Founder
Religious life is a call to perfect charity. Our Father Founder taught us , “a faithful and generous imitation of the virtues which the sacred symbols of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary wish to impress strongly on our hearts: charity and sweetness, humility and dedication, obedience and kindness”.
These virtues shape our very selves. They lend serenity and collegiality to our religious family and our apostolic service among God’s people – all in an effort to draw everyone to the meek and humble Heart of Christ.
Our Father Founder encouraged an apostolic project for our sisters, in which we are called to give witness to the merciful love of God, in union with the mother care of Mary, Mother of the Church.
As religious sisters, we must strive to be those consecrated souls nurtured by our Founder with the assistance and guidance of our foundress Mother Maria Teresa DeVincenti. Compelled by humility and love, we are always attentive to carry out our mission not only in the name of the Church but also in intimate communion with the Church and the entire Body of Christ.
