Charism

charism micm2The Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary are united by chains of filial love that bind them spiritually to the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, consecrating themselves to her in the manner set forth in the writings of Saint Louis De Montfort.

According to this consecration they give their entire lives to her service, first for the sanctification of their own soul, and then as an instrument used by Our Lady for the salvation of others.

As Slaves, the religious give away everything, even the value of their good merits, walking in the footsteps of Jesus, following Him in His poverty, humility, contempt of the world and charity. Their mission is to teach “the narrow way of God in pure truth, according to the holy Gospel and not according to the maxims of the world.”

"We never give more honour to Jesus than when we honour his Mother, and we honour her simply and solely to honour him all the more perfectly. We go to her only as a way leading to the goal we seek - Jesus, her Son." ~Saint Louis Marie de Montfort
