A Life of Intercession and Reparation
“Let them have at heart the conversion of sinners…the sanctification of the neighbor, freedom of souls in purgatory and the exaltation of Holy Mother Church. Let them pray also for the Sovereign Pontiff…and for all evangelical workers…
A Life of Worship and Self-Gift
“To this end, let them frequently offer to the Eternal Father the Passion of Jesus Christ. This being the very end of the Institude of the Daughters of the Cross and Passion of Jesus Christ.”
~ St. Paul of the Cross in his Primitive Regulations for the Passionist Nuns 1772
Saint John the Beloved Disciple, our Blessed Mother,
Saint Paul of the Cross and Saint Gabriel of our Lady of Sorrows
Deep in the wooded serenity of 170 acres near Whitesville Kentucky, we continue Passionist contemplative life begun in Italy by the greatest mystic of the 18th century, St. Paul of the Cross. After founding the Passionist Congregation for men he then founded the Passionist Nuns in 1771. He was driven by a desire to comfort Christ in His sacred Passion and make Him more known and loved by all.
Through our monastic life of joyful prayer, penance, silence, solitude and virtue we enter deeply into the pierced heart of Christ, interceding for the needs of the Church and the world and giving unceasing praise and thanks to the Holy Trinity. As “Daughters of the Passion” we dwell on calvary next to our Sorrowful Mother comforting Christ her Son. This blog is consecrated to these Two Hearts.
