Prayer is not about doing something. It’s about being with Someone – God Himself. 

Every human person is made for a unique love and communion with God and others. Jesus wants you to be with Him, but not for anything you can do –  just because you are you, and He loves you.

This truth fuels our prayer. As Sisters of Life, we commit to deep, daily prayer, lifting up the needs of every human person, especially the most vulnerable, to Jesus, the Lord of Life.

Our Prayer

The Eucharist is the center of our lives. Like our Blessed Mother, who conceived Jesus beneath her heart at the Annunciation and immediately “went in haste to the hill country” (Lk 1:39) to serve her pregnant cousin Elizabeth, we receive Jesus in the Eucharist before we begin our work on behalf of vulnerable human life.

We live a spirituality of vulnerable love. Our faith in His Presence in the Eucharist helps us to discern His presence in every human life, especially when that life is vulnerable, silent, hidden or diminished in any way. We seek to be in union with him, becoming as vulnerable as Christ in the manger, on the Cross, and in the Eucharist, and as vulnerable as the child in the womb.

All of our common prayer is prayed before the Blessed Sacrament.  We spend four hours each day in prayer, including a daily, common Eucharistic Holy Hour, the Rosary, periods of meditation, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and the Liturgy of the Hours. We also spend time each day in spiritual reading. All the convents reserve one day a week and one Sunday a month as prayer days spent in silence with extended hours of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.

We look to our Blessed Mother as our model of self-giving, joy-filled love, our hope of promises fulfilled, and the mother of our souls. She is always there for us, leading us, without fear, deeper into the heart of Jesus.

Prayer is powerful.

– That’s why we spend four hours each day in common prayer centered around the Eucharist.

– That’s why we reserve one day a week for prayer and an additional Sunday every month for retreat.

– And that’s why we invite you to step into prayer in your own life. Encounter the Love for which you are made.
