"Go out into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature."
Holy Mary, Mother of Creation, bless us that we may experience God as Love
in praise of all creatures, in love of all of creation. Amen.

Elizabeth, filled with the Holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said,
"Most blessed are you among women,
and blessed is the fruit of your womb."
We are an Independent Catholic Franciscan Religious Order in Oakland Park, FL, not under the jurisdiction of Rome. Our Order was created September 8, 2007 on the Feast of the Birth of Mary. We are a contemplative Order in that we seek to live lives that are centered around prayer as opposed to prayer being something we just "fit in" when we have the time. We want to create a cyber community of Sisters as well as local communities. We
welcome everyone who feels "Called by Mary" to say "Yes" as She did
every moment and to follow Her Way... a way of love and acceptance for
all people ... for all life... for all Creation... a way of peace. Being Catholic is NOT a requirement to become a member of our Order. However, being able to embrace our beliefs regarding Mary is! We do NOT believe that Mary was ever meek, passive and/or submissive. Quite the opposite, She was courageous and strong in Her saying "YES" to God. More than a mere "act of obedience" to the Will of God, Her decision was one of great faith and trust.
