Little Company of Mary Africa

Our Spirituality

As Sisters of the Little Company of Mary, we are called in spirit to be companions of Mary, Mother of God: one with her in mind and heart, as we live our lives with and for Christ.

Our lives continue to be dedicated to making visible the healing presence of Jesus in the midst of human suffering, wherever and however it is experienced, through lives committed to being for the suffering of the world, as Mary was for her Son, Jesus, on Calvary - through prayer, compassion and presence.

This grace – to pray for the dying was developed through the insights she received from her reflections on Calvary. She saw that prayer for the dying would be in union with Mary at the foot of the Cross on Calvary, to honour the Precious Blood that was shed for us, and to live lives consecrated to God.
