Mary's openness to the Spirit and her ready faith response to what God asked of her motivated Blessed Catherine Kasper to respond with attentive, courageous fidelity to the whisperings of the Spirit within her. Through simple, loving service and living faith these first handmaids revealed the experience of God's love in the world.
Today, we Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ strive to listen attentively to the promptings of that same Spirit. We respond with courage to the daily challenge to be women of faith and vision. We live gospel values through our presence and ministry to and with others.
