Ursuline Sisters A.H.J.
SPIRITUALITY... and... MISSION
from the Constitutions of the Ursuline Sisters of Jesus Agonizing:
Be attentive to the Word of Christ: "I thirst" answering to the love of the Divine Heart, giving oneself to Him totally and without reserve, so that He may extend through us the work of salvation.
Let us desire to live more fully for Christ and for His Mystical Body which is the Church, consecrating all our efforts to the extending of the kingdom of God on earth.
For this reason:
- Know and love the Divine Heart of Jesus.
- Place as centre of our personal and community life the participation at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass;
- Cultivate a special devotion to our Lady "Star of the Sea"
- Abandon oneself with trust to the Holy Will of God.
"God our Father in his ineffable love has chosen and called us, through the Holy Spirit, to leave everything, to follow Jesus Christ by means of the profession of the evangelical counsels in the Congregation of the Ursuline Sisters of Jesus Agonizing.
This vocation unites us in a special way to the mystery of the Agony of Christ, sent by the Father, who has loved all humanity as to offer for them death of the Cross, so that everyone, participating to his death and his resurrection, may reach the fullness of life.
The specific mission of the Congregation is:
To announce Christ, the love of His Heart...
By means of:
Education and instruction to children and to youth;
Service to our most needy brothers and sisters and to the oppressed;
All forms of activity which tend to the evangelization of the world.
The Ursuline sister of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Agonizing must and wants to: consecrate herself to the poor.
Be sensitive to the signs of the times, open to the needs of the Church and of all humanity;
Live in the spirit of truth, of simplicity and of service with HUMILITY.
