We are one family, bonded together and sent to change conditions that breed poverty, injustice, discrimination and marginalization.

We care for one another. Caring gives birth to covenant relationships ―empathy, friendship, tenderness, compassion, mercy, unconditional love and deep respect.

The power of growth is in relationship where in every encounter we are both giver and receiver. We value ‘power with’ vs ‘power over’

Belief in the capacity to rise beyond one’s struggles.

Our Spirituality leads to personal transformation and transformation of the world.

We live what we believe that we are sent to those who have neither voice nor influence in this world.

DAY 9 of 9 Novena
to request the Intercession of our Assumptionist founder, Fr. Stephen Pernet, to heal James from liver cancer. James is described as a truly beautiful soul with a heart light that shines so bright and wraps itself around every single person he encounters.

O God, in Your love for all of humanity, You filled the heart of Father Stephen Pernet with the ardent desire to establish Your Reign among the poor, the workers and their families. You inspired him to found the Congregation of the Little Sisters of the Assumption.

Grant that we may be animated by the same passion to work for Your Glory and for the good of the poor and little ones.

Today, in hope and prayer, we are awaiting the recognition by the Church of the Sanctity of Father Pernet who devoted his life for the well-being of families. That is why, through his intercession, we are praying to You to bestow upon James a full cure from liver cancer.

Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory Be …

When I read the mission statement of the Little Sisters of the Assumption, I found it expressed my own sentiments when it said, “We bring together the least advantaged and the privileged in a spirit of family to inspire everyone to participate in creating a just society.”

I know that these 11 months have given me much more than two semesters at a university could ever have given me; I now feel much more ready to resume my studies.
