Life with Mary
“The Community belongs to the Virgin Mary.”
This assertion by Marthe Robin encourages us to study the mystery of Mary. Mary, in her very own being, reveals to us the mystery of an already transfigured humanity, and she intercedes for us, so that the heart of man may at last conceive its hidden vocation as a creature born out of love, for love. She is our model of the creature’s intimate union with the Creator.
A Marian spirituality is not the only defining piece of our spirituality. However, we intend to allow Our Lady to play an important role in our hearts and Community. She is our life’s model and Our Mother who teaches us to live according to the Beatitudes. We wish to relate to her at both communal and personal levels and to let her be the guardian and queen of our Community.
Following the example of Saint Louis-Marie Grignon de Montfort, we start each day by consecrating ourselves to the Virgin Mary. We also express our devotion to Our Lady through daily recitation of the Rosary and other pious devotions.
“True devotion to Mary consists in doing all things with Her, in Her, through Her, and for Her.”
