"Life grows by being given away, and it weakens in isolation and comfort.  It is attained and matures in the measure that it is offered up in order to give life to others." H.H. Francis

“To serve until exhaustion, is always a very great offering of love...love must be given when it is most difficult...
when our strength seems to run out...there is where the beauty of love triumphs."

The Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary began this page on August 22, 2006, the Feast of the Queenship of Mary,
placing our Marian charism at the service of the New Evangelization.
It is our constant prayer, that this simple effort may help many hearts to discover the splendor of the Magisterium and Treasures of the Church,
and so form ardent and luminous witnesses of the faith to build a new civilization of love and life.
