The Church needs more Sisters because they bear witness that the love of God is real and fulfills the deepest desires of the human heart. They confound the wisdom of the world that says you can’t be happy without sex, money, and total freedom from any constraint. By the smiles on their faces and their compassionate hearts, Sisters radiate God’s love and show that their Bridegroom, Jesus, is truly present and active in the world.
—Dr. Mary Healy, author and Professor of Sacred Scripture at Sacred Heart Major Seminary
From World Youth Days to concerts, I have often had the opportunity to work with and meet Religious Sisters. Their grace–filled joy reminds us of the heavenly life we are all called to; by being a Bride of Christ, they show us what we all are made for! The visible witness of the habit and their life of order and prayer encourages us all to be visible signs of the God’s love and mercy in the world! We truly depend on the prayers of Religious Sisters, and they remind us to keep our eyes fixed on Christ!
—Matt Maher, singer and songwriter
