You have need of patience to do God's will and receive what He has promised.
Heb 10: 36
Impatience is weakness, stubbornness, and does not follow God's way. On the other hand, patience is a force that does God's will
Patience is a living faith expressed in daily deeds and confirmed by suffering. It adheres to God and hence is assured of His Divine promises.
Our Congregation of Franciscan Sisters was established in Glasgow as an apostolic institute and follows The Rule and Life of the Brothers and Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis. At the request of Pope Pius IX, who approved our first Constitutions in 1854, the year in which he proclaimed the Dogma of the Immaculate Conception, we honour our Blessed Lady as our special patroness and are known as Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate Conception.
As members of this Institute of Pontifical Right, we dedicate ourselves to a life of mission and evangelisation as we seek new and different ways to spread the good news of the Gospel message. Our primary apostolate is the witness we give through our different apostolates.
Obedience:- In the profession of Obedience, we seek to unite ourselves to the saving mission of Christ who lived his whole life in complete and loving submission to his Father's will, and who was obedient "even to accepting death, death on a cross.
Poverty:- As Franciscans, our Rule and our way of life is to follow the footsteps of Jesus Christ in all things. Since he made himself poor for us we are called to serve the Lord in poverty and simplicity, trusting in God and ready to share who we are and what we have, as St. Francis did.
Chastity:- In imitation of Christ, consecrated Chastity, voluntarily embraced, under the inspitation of the Holy Spirit and for the sake of the Kingdom, is a precious gift of God. we joyfully accept this gift and freely give ourselves to him in our loving service of his people.
