The common life is based
on the fact that each Sister has been called by God to take her
share in the vocation of the Society. The Sisters therefore seek to
live together in charity and mutual acceptance, bearing one
another's burdens and helping one another to fulfil their common
called to "spend and be spent" with joy in a common life
of worship, thanksgiving and intercession, taking part with the
whole Church in the prayer of Christ for the glory of God and the
coming of his Kingdom.
from the Rule of the Society of the Precious Blood:
- Each Sister is called
to respond to the love of Jesus by surrendering to Him
their whole being that He may take them and bless them
and use them according to the Father's will.
- They desire to be one
with Him in His total dependence on the Father, humbly
trusting that their needs will be supplied.
- They choose within
the life of this Community to surrender their wills to
God in love in the encounter with Christ in each
- It is only the love
of God for us that makes this life possible.
