Prayer of the Institute


Father and Mother of infinite love

We praise you!

Help us to assume our commitment of fidelity

to the mission of Christ

in the Church of today

as it leads the way in defense of the oppressed.


Make us sensitive to the needs of your people.

Mark us with the fidelity of Gailhac.

May our presence be a constant revelation of love and joy as was Mary's 

Woman of faith and hope.

Make us grow, Lord, in true zeal, capable of transforming the world.

May our hearts discover you in the Scriptures

in the breaking of bread and in the service of others.

Strengthened and united in love we want as individuals, and as an Institute,

to be a testimony to the world that you are Father and that we are brothers and sisters

in your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen
