Prayer to Our Mother of Peace
O Mother of Jesus and Our Mother full of grace, bear His peace, His presence, His holiness, your Divine Son into our very souls; nourish our minds with His mind for lowliness; our hearts with His heart for self-giving; our souls with His soul for quietness, resting in His Father’s Will; all our energies with His strength for zeal; and with your holy maternal love support each step of your little ones as they cling to you and strive to walk in His likeness. Amen.
“As we turn our attention to the hermitage – that sacred sanctuary for dwelling with God in solitude – the whole summons of grace is to lose ourselves in Him: to be transformed into Jesus. How very important it is then that the hermitage not be considered a ‘homey’ place, a resting place, but a place of fundamental and intense orientation, causing us to be at home only in God. It is not our home but His which we seek to live in, in this tabernacle of Spirit…in the desert.” (Const. p. 19.)
Each member occupies a simple hermitage. In this solitary atmosphere he is called to seek freedom from everything which could diminish his love for God.
