Adore the Most Holy Will of God in every happening.  The love of God is as strong as death (Song of Songs 8:6).  The loving soul holds its heart turned towards heaven.  Look at your trials with the eye of faith, not as coming from creatures, but from the loving hand of God.

- St. Paul of the Cross, Founder


The sorrowful Mother appeared to St. Paul of the Cross in the eighteenth century dressed in the Passionist habit, asking him to found an institute to remember the sufferings and death of her Son.

Today, the Passionist Nuns, a Roman Catholic cloistered community, live out this same spirit at their monastery in Erlanger, Kentucky, watching and waiting at the foot of the Cross with Mary, offering their lives of prayer and intercession for the world.
