Mother Adela Galindo, Foundress SCTJM
Read a short biography of Mother...

"You have not only a glorious history to remember and to recount, but also a great history still to be accomplished!
Look to the future, where the Spirit is sending you in order to do even greater things.
Be always ready, faithful to Christ, to the Church,
to your institute and to the men and women of our time"
(Vita Consecrata, n. 110)

Go forth sisters! The Two Hearts have designs of mercy over us " (Mother Adela)

                    WHO WE ARE:
                    The "Servants of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary" are a diocesan religious institute founded in 1990 by Mother Adela Galindo in the Archdiocese of Miami, Florida, USA.

                    We are members of the Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious (CMSWR).

“We are called to manifest the reign of love of the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary as the building force
for the construction of a new civilization of love, life, truth, and solidarity.”
Mother Adela, Foundress SCTJM

Our Foundress offers the Holy Father the love and unconditional fidelity of our foundation.


               OUR SPIRITUAL CHARISM...

To be a living image and presence of the Heart of Mary in the heart of the Church and place our Marian charism at the service of the Apostolic - Petrine principle.

               Fundamental Dimensions of Our Charism:

Total dedication of our lives in love to the Eucharistic Heart
eing a living image and presence of the Heart of Mary
Actively receiving and communicating the gifts of the Holy Spirit
In the heart of the church...
                       Generously placing our feminine genius in loving communion and service of the Apostolic - Petrine Principle

               our four vows:

Poverty: with a generous and diligent heart, to detach myself of all things to have the Heart of Jesus as
          my only inheritance and treasure and to freely give all that I am and have for the common good of our Institute

with a spousal and undivided heart, to love the Heart of Jesus with a total, oblative and unconditional
         dedication and to be open to receive and communicate the fecundity that flows from the potency
         of this communion of love.

Obedience: with a receptive and docile heart, to responsibly and effectively dispose myself to fulfill the designs of love
         of the Heart of Jesus manifested through my legitimate superiors and the government of our Institute.

Total Marian Identification and Availability:
to be a living image and presence of the Heart of Mary and to generously dispose the potentialities of my feminine genius in loving communion and service of the Apostolic - Petrine principle, thus enfleshing our
Marian charism in the Heart of the Church

               SOME ELEMENTS:

   Eucharistic adoration and contemplation
   A ready openness to the power or the Holy Spirit and to the charisms
   Total consecration and identification with the Heart of Mary
   To love, think and live in the Heart of the Church
