Spirituality

 

We the Franciscan Sisters of St. Mary of the Angels, tread the path of love and service in the foot-steps of St. Francis of Assisi and our Founders.


We follow a  four- faceted charism to help us  to be rooted in God and thus be “ good news” through our  apostolate.


In the present socio-economic scenario we work to establish peace, harmony and wholeness. To answer this call effectively constant  guidelines are made available to us through various meetings, seminars, workshops but above all through spiritual renewal. The source of our strength is prayer.


As Franciscans, we are called to deepen our Christian commitment in living the values of Christ in our own lives and seeing the face of God in all creation.

 

We deepen our concern for Mother Earth and shoulder the responsibility to alleviate environmental degradation and all sorts of threats to life. And thus work to create a harmonious whole, being one world, one people, one planet.

Prayer life & Community life style

 

Within the Convent and its premises we pursue our life in the spirit of silence, absolutely necessary for equilibrium and asceticism for which each one of us is responsible.


Daily we have the Eucharistic celebration, the Divine office in the morning and evening together, an hour of adoration of the Eucharistic Lord as personal prayer and as a community we  pray together for an hour in the evening.


Each sister is encouraged to spend more time in prayerful contemplation, spiritual reading and meditation.

 

It takes time in faith, prayer and discernment to commit oneself to God in this way. The initial stages of religious life are designed to help a person grow towards a fuller understanding of what God is asking.

 

Spirituality springs from within, determines one’s lifestyle and radiates all around.

A spirituality is something that springs from within, that radiates from a central vision. A spirituality determines one’s lifestyle and is adaptable to the various situations in which we find ourselves.
