As you are crucified with Christ, you become more and more transformed in God through faith and love. Remain in peace on the Cross.  Be silent and sing in spirit:  I will not glory in anything other than in the Cross of my gentle Savior (Gal 6:14).

- 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.
