Our Mission

Mary of the Passion with a large heart willing to embrace those in need of  whatever kind did not specify a particular line of action for her daughters. Instead, they are expected to answer the needs of our  day as she did in her life time. Being the first missionary congregation for women in the church she reached out wholesale for the development and liberation of women – claiming self-respect, providing means to earn their livelihood and to be daring to an extant too.

Our Vision

For Mary of the Passion the very purpose of the Institute was to announce to all the reign of God. This universal concept of mission is clearly revealed in her writings on the Kingdom of God, sometimes called the kingdom of love, of charity, of justice, and kingdom of peace. Hence the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary promote the reign of God, through various activities as well as by the silent witness of their lives, by accepting daily tensions, through painful physical infirmities 

We know, brethren beloved of God that you were chosen by him.(1 Tim 1:4)

Mary of the Passion let herself seized by God who was able to satisfy the thirst for truth that motivated her. Founding the Franciscan Missionaries of mary, she burned to communicate the torrents of love that sprang up in her and wished to extend them all over the world. At the heart of the missionary commitment she placed prayer and the Eucharist because, for her,adoration and mission blended to become the same work. Drawing on scripture and the Fathers of the Church, combining a mystical and active vocation, passionate and intrepid, she gave herself with an intuitive and bold readiness to the universal mission of the Church, and welcome the invitation to live to with renewed fidelity the intuition of founding charism, so that many may discover Jesus, who makes us enter into the mystery of love that is god

Our Services

Promoting Justice, dignity, harmony and communion among people

Her desire to serve the less fortunate led her to open educational institutions, health-care services and set up self-supporting activities for women. We respond to the vulnerable and the marginalized of our days, focusing especially on women through varied services, empowering and assuring them a dignified life. In a spirit of minority and solidarity we commit to live in inter- connectedness with the cosmos, care for mother earth thus sharing God`s gifts with all. Through the powerful means of the media we share our spirituality and promote higher levels of communion among people.

Be Confident in Who You Are

He picked up five smooth stones from a stream and put them into his shepherd’s bag. Then, armed only with his shepherd’s staff and sling, he started across the valley to fight the Philistine. 1 Samuel 17:40, NLT

 

When David went out to face Goliath, he didn’t have any protective armor, and his only weapon was his slingshot. King Saul had good intentions when he tried to get David to wear his armor and use his sword. But Saul’s armor didn’t fit David, and it would have weighed him down and hindered him. That’s because what God has given other people is not going to work for you. Don’t try to be like somebody else. “I wish I had their talent, their looks, their personality.” What they have wasn’t designed for you. You are unique. You are one of a kind. The Creator of the universe has custom-made you. Nobody has what you have.

You have to be confident in who God made you to be. You’re the right size. You have the right looks. You have the right personality and gifts. You have exactly what you need for where you are. However insignificant your sling and five stones may seem, they’re more than enough for a Goliath.

Prayer for Today

Father, thank You that just as David did not need Saul’s armor, I don’t need to try to be like anyone else. Thank You that no one else has exactly what You’ve given me, and it fits me perfectly. I believe that in You I have everything I need for where I am today. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
