Life with Mary
« The Community belongs to the Virgin Mary »
This assertion expressed by Marthe Robin encourages us to study more in depth 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 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 a creature’s intimate union with the Creator.
A marian spirituality is not only one aspect of our spirituality. However, Our Lady intends playing a role, be it in a very hidden way, in our hearts and in our Community. She is our life’s model and our mother who teaches us to live according to the Beatitudes. We wish, both at a community and personal level, to relate to Her and let Her be the guardian and Queen of our Community.
Following the example of Saint Louis-Marie Grignon de Monfort 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.”
