“SIMPLICITAS et HUMILITAS cum COMPASSIO et CARITAS cum DELECTATIO"
To be unattached to nonessential things in the spirit of Phil 4:11 – 13, “Not that I say this because of need, for I have learned, in whatever situation I find myself, to be self-sufficient.
I know indeed how to live in humble circumstances; I know also how to live with abundance. In every circumstance and in all things I have learned the secret of being well-fed and of going hungry, of living in abundance and of being in need. I have the strength for everything through him who strengthens me.”
To acknowledge and be grateful to God for the gifts and talents He has given us, and not be carried away by them while at the same time avoiding a sense of false humility and self-deprecation.
We strive to acknowledge our strengths, with a constant spirit of thanksgiving
To nurture a spirit of loving neighbor through our Love of God, based on the theme of our wedding, John 13:34, “As I have loved you” and 1 John 4:19, “We love because he first loved us.”
To offer a healthy combination of sympathy and empathy and treat others as they themselves would like to be treated.
We delight in each other and radiate the joy and happiness that comes from the reason for our hope, 1 Peter 3: 15.
Our Charism of Hospitality
To offer a place of warmth and welcome where the visitor can discuss any topic in an atmosphere filled with Christ’s love. We pray for all who enter our home.

Lord, you’ve given us the gift to touch Your love on earth through the gift of our family, reflecting the love of the Trinity. Thank you! Please pour Your graces on us so we can love You with our whole mind, heart and soul and radiate your love, peace and joy in all we do. We love you Jesus!
Blessed be Your name forever, Amen.
The Vocation Prayer by St. Francis of Assisi
Most High, Glorious God, enlighten the darkness of our minds. Give us a right faith, a firm hope and perfect charity, so that we may always and in all things act according to Your Holy Will.
