Our Charism

The foundress of our Community one day heard in her heart the words of Our Lord, “My people do not know Me.  Those who were to give witness to Me no longer do so.”  With these words she also felt the deep sadness in the heart of Our Lord Who has been left alone and abandoned by so many of His specially chosen ones.  From that time on she felt called to give explicit witness to the reality of the living God and to do all that she could to make Him known, loved and adored in His Church and in His Eucharistic Presence.

 

Thus, the Franciscan Sisters of the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus are called to be enfolded in the Eucharistic Heart of Christ.  There, in His Heart, we are called to contemplate Him and His great Love, to give Him due adoration, praise and thanksgiving and to console and make reparation to Him for those who have abandoned Him, and for those who offend Him in His Church and in the Sacrament of His Love.

We are called to give visible witness to His Real and Living Presence in the world and to make known His Eucharistic Presence and Love to others.  We are called to give visible witness to the Church He founded, and to our faith and fidelity to Him and His Church through our faithful obedience to His Vicar on earth, the Pope, and to the teaching Magisterium of the Church.

Finally we are called, as was our Holy Father, St. Francis, “To heal wounds, to unite what has fallen apart and to bring back those who have lost their way,” especially those consecrated to the service of His Church.  This we do through the total self-giving of ourselves, our prayers, our visible witness and our own service to the Church in imitation of the humble and obedient Francis, all through the Presence, Power and Love of Christ present to us in the Holy Eucharist, and under the guidance of our Immaculate Mother Mary.

 



“Love is not loved.”

(Our Lord to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque)


“You are to be my witnesses . . . yes, even to the ends of the earth.”
(Acts 1:8)
