Daughters of Divine Love Congregation


 Daughters of Divine Love Congregation-- Main Site (actually, this is a development site), and I'm not sure they will have an English language website.  Or, their anticipated website link has been hijacked, because it comes up in another language.  The above link is good, though.

The Love of Christ Urges Us On

Love of Christ therefore is our motive and distinguishing mark.

 "We, the Daughters of Divine Love, an international congregation of religious women, impelled by the Gospel of Christ and the spirit of our founder are called to a courageous loving response to Divine Love Incarnate in contemplation, harmonious community living and apostolic action made visible in selfless liberating service to the entire creation."


Jesus I love you. I want to love you daily more and more.
Fill me with your love.
Soak me in your love.
Permeated and transformed by your love, may I radiate your love,
Diffuse your love and enkindle in others the fire of your love.
Amen
Mother of Divine Love, teach us how to love
