Father, they are your gift to Me. I wish that where I am they also
may be with Me, that they may see My glory that You gave Me,
because You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

Gospel of Saint John 17:24

We pray each day for the great gift of life-long fidelity. Remembering that Our Lord treasures each one of us as the gift of the Father to Himself, we encourage and inspire one another to be faithful as Our Lord was faithful “even to accepting death, death on the cross.” (Phil. 2:8)  Perseverance in religious life is not our work only but the work of the Holy Spirit in us, united to our humble efforts. — Constitutions 69
