I rejoice and caress the truth wherever I find it and I embrace it with joy.
M. de Montaigne


Mary is the expression and synthesis of what we want to live as Company of Mary. This is clearly expressed in the last Article of our constitutions. This text succinctly expresses the charism of the Company. Mary is presented as a model and reference of what the religious are called to live. Today this also applies to the laity who share the spirituality of Jeanne de Lestonnac.
Let us explore the experience of Mary, the New Woman who shaped her existence to that of the Gospel, who lived according to the teachings of Jesus sharing the path with his followers in the community of believers. She placed all her energy at the service of the Kingdom.
  • As a follower of Jesus she participates in the Paschal Mystery in humility and simplicity.
  • With the strength of the Spirit she journeys with the apostles towards the fulfillment of a new order revealed by God in Jesus Christ.
