Abandon yourself always more to the will of our dear God.  Don't be afraid of dryness or desolation or of anything else, but with a courageous heart press on ahead.  How pleasing to God is the loving abandonment of our will into His.

St. Paul of the Cross



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.
