Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord
Maria Perpetua Radlmair
To be fully consecrated
To be in the world and not of the world
To be a sign of God
To give a Christian note to the secular world.
A vowed life of evangelical counsels
No external sign of separation from common people
An apostolate of presence through
Radiating selfless serving love
Take up any secular profession that fosters Christian presence
A Unique Call
To inject into the society new energies of the kingdom of God.
To animate and transfigure the world from within by the power of the beatitudes.
To be seeds of holiness scattered in the furrows of history.
To be heralds of the newness of life in Christ.
To be the light of the world, salt of the earth and the leaven of transformation in communion with Christ
To be an advanced guard of the Church in the world
To be the experimental laboratory in with the church tests the concrete ways of her relation with the world
