Daughters of Holy Mary of The Heart of Jesus

Institute of Pontifical Right since 1998

Contemplatives and Missionaries of the Trinitarian love of Christ

Our Foundress, Mother María de Jesús Velarde, was the instrument chosen by God to lead our Congregation along the path of sanctity that the Church ratified on the 25th of December, with the approval of our Constitutions. El 9 de marzo de 2021 regresó al seno de Dios Padre con una vida colmada de buenas obras y una muerte ejemplar, llena de paz y de gracia.

  • Our Charism takes into account the following four aspects:

  • Spirituality:
    That of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We offer adoration, love and reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, especially in the Eucharist, in union with Mary, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart.
  • Mission:
    As fruit of our contemplative prayer we are missionaries of the Trinitarian Love of God revealed in Christ, in our apostolic works.
  • Apostolate:
    We are opened to all stable apostolates that do not hinder a strong community life and it is two most important manifestations: prayer and the relationship among ourselves as expressed in our Constitutions and Directory.
  • Our mission statement:
    May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be loved everywhere
    Ametur ubique terrarum Cor Jesu Sacratissimum
