Reflecting on Pope Francis' 2017 World Day of Peace message


Our Congregation of Franciscan Sisters was established in Glasgow as an apostolic institute and follows The Rule and Life of the Brothers and Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis. At the request of Pope Pius IX, who approved our first Constitutions in 1854, the year in which he proclaimed the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception, we honour our Blessed Lady as our special patroness and are known as Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception.

As members of this Institute of Pontifical Right, we dedicate ourselves to a life of mission and evangelisation as we seek new and different ways to spread the good news of the Gospel message. Our primary apostolate is the witness we give through our different apostolates.

Pope Francis writes, "To be true followers of Jesus today also includes embracing his teaching about nonviolence." Francis reminds us that Jesus' teaching of God's unconditional love calls us to turn the other cheek, love our enemies and faithfully live the Sermon on the Mount. 

"May charity and nonviolence govern how we treat each other as individuals, within society and in international life."


Pope Francis
The Holy Father powerfully declares: "Violence is not the cure for our broken world." 

Minute Meditations For Each Day


Let whoever would serve Me follow Me. Jn 12:26

 

REFLECTION: Let this be our goal everyday to follow Jesus through all the paths that He may lead us, no matter how difficult or painful they may be .

What is there to fear if the Master is with us and He Himslf opens the way for us? In faith, we know that this path leads us to the Father and always ends in victory and glory.

PRAYER. O Lord, take me by the hand and lead to my blessed goal: to possess You for all eternity.
