The Capuchin Sisters of Nazareth have a special devotion to the great Mother of God, Mary most holy. Each sister, as a response to the call of Our Lady of Fatima, is consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. The sisters honor Mary as Mother, protectress, and Queen of their Order. They strive to respond with her "Fiat", and imitate her selfless love of Christ and His people, in their communal life, their prayer, and their apostolate.
"Hail Lady, Holy Queen, Holy Mary Mother of God,
who art the Virgin made Church and the One elect by the Most Holy Father of Heaven,
whom He consecrated with His Most Holy beloved Son and with the Holy Spirit, the Paraclete;
Thou in whom was and is all fullness of grace and every good.
Hail His Palace;
Hail His Tabernacle;
Hail His Home.
Hail His Vestment;
Hail His Handmaid;
Hail His Mother
And hail all you holy virtues, which through the grace and illumination of the Holy Spirit
are infused into the hearts of the faithful, so that from those unfaithful you make them faithful to God."
- St Francis of Assisi
