Congregation of Our Lady of Charity of the Good Shepherd

We are an International congregation, with an apostolic or contemplative lifestyle. We express our charism together with mission partners in 72 countries.

Our Vision

We envision a new way of living that celebrates the connectedness of all God's creation, an inclusive world where the dignity and diversity of all life is honored and protected.

Our Mission

Energized by our evolving understanding of God's love, we build partnerships that promote the dignity and human rights of all, especially women and children. In solidarity, we work for the transformation of unjust systems, the flourishing of humanity and integrity of all creation.

The Heart of the Mission

It is from the heart of Jesus that you will draw love of the virtues you should practice, and especially those related to zeal.

I am with you always

The Word of God:
“Think of the love that God has lavished on us”. ” 1John 3: 1
Reflection
“Lavish” is a word we don’t use very often. It is a word that means more than generous. Lavish means more than enough has been given! The Word you have received today is reminding you that God’s love for you is lavish in its strength, in its depths, and in its unconditional acceptance of you. God’s love for you is more than generous in its desire to care for you.
Ritual
Pause now and think about this… try to be aware of the many ways in which God’s love for you comes to you through others and through creation. In the quiet of your heart, feel the comfort of God’s lavish, generous love for you… and take a moment to let it strengthen your heart.
Remember
God has lavished me with love.

Justice Peace
