“Journeying with peoples of different contexts, races, and cultures, and listening profoundly to the joys and suffering of humanity have allowed us to be touched by the poverty, inequality, exclusion, violence, and environmental destruction that are present in today’s world. We recognise with greater clarity the interconnectedness of global realities and the impact that these have on our local situations. We are more aware of the marginalising effects of globalisation and of cultures of dominance and exclusion.
We suffer the pain of our peoples. With them and from this depth, we enter into the Open Heart of Christ, the wellspring that satisfies our thirst. From our contemplation of the Pierced Heart of Jesus in the heart of wounded humanity flows the desire to commit ourselves with greater passion and compassion to justice, peace, and the integrity of creation.”
"We have a spirituality that unifies our commitment to the world and the contemplative experience. Formation, both initial and ongoing, must help reveal that God is here, hidden in life's story, and it is in this concrete story where we discover the signs of God's love and where we are sent to make it manifest. Our spirituality is embodied by our becoming global citizens, and it revitalises our vocation to transform the world with the hearts and minds of educators... As celibate women we want to centre our desires on building up a society based on the dignity of the human person and the dreams of God. Like Jesus, we want those who are marginalised to take radical priority in our hearts."
