Rosa Mystica

Rosa Mystica

Rosa Mystica – We, the sisterhood of the Mystical Rose, endeavor to develop a longing to become one with Christ, by dying to ourselves under the mantle of Our Blessed Mother, the Mystical Rose. We aim to no longer desire drops of affection, but aim to desire a river of graces; to replace our thirst for physical perfection with a thirst for perfection of the soul; to no longer hunger for the attention of others, but to hunger to be emptied of ourselves so that we may be filled with the love of Christ. Instead of seeing so many aspects of our lives that dissatisfy us, we strive to see God’s goodness in everything; and, recognize the ways in which He blesses us perpetually. By plunging deep into a life of prayer, developing a fellowship and community of women united by faith; and, together, humbly serving our brothers and sisters whom God has called us to love, we aspire to develop a trust in God through self-abandonment, as demonstrated by our patronesses Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta and St. Therese the Little Flower, in order to be filled with Christ Himself, becoming a little flock enflamed with the fire of Christ’s love, radiating His light to the world.
