The Beatification of Mother Maria Cristina

ombra

Passage extracted from the Homily of John Paul II during the beatification ceremony in Saint Peter’s Square on April 27, 2003.

“All that God worked through Maria Christina Brando is astonishing. Her Eucharistic and expiatory spirituality is expressed in two lines, like “two branches that stem from the same trunk”: love of God and love of neighbour. Her desire to take part in Christ’s passion, as it were, “overflowed” into educational works, for the purpose of making people aware of their dignity
and open to the Lord’s merciful love.

“I then address with affection the spiritual Daughters of Maria Christina Brando who received from their Foundress a demanding programme of life and ecclesial service: to be united to Christ who gives himself for humanity in the Eucharist, and to spread their own love of God in humble and daily service to their needy brothers and sisters.

May the Virgin Mary, to whose protection the new Blessed wanted to entrust the Sisters, Expiatory Victims of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, watch over you always, dear Religious, so that, keeping your charism intact, you may share your precious inheritance with the new generations”.
