Father of immense goodness,

They are 150 years...

educating the whole person,

evangelizing, giving the Spiritual Exercises,

accompanying young people, bringing joy,

being close to those who suffer the most,

serving the poor,

growing and sharing charism with many laity,

making us “family” of M. Candida.

Help us to be a congregation of union,

of love, of true and fruitful apostolate,

having, as the star of our ways,

Mary Immaculate.

Jesus, we ask you to help us

to contemplate reality

so as to recognize so much Good received

and “attain Love”,

to continue being like You,

and discover the new face of the charism

to share it with many.

May M. Candida

stimulate us to live belonging,

familiarity with God,

universal brotherhood,

the availability to serve where it is most needed and

may she fuel the desire to "go anywhere in the world."

Saint Candida Maria de Jesus, pray for us.
