Little Sisters of Jesus in Italy, Tre Fontane, Rome

'May this home of the Little Sisters be the House of the Lord!
May the Little sisters learn here how to live the Gospel!
May their beloved Brother and Lord Jesus always remain their one and only model!
May the Virgin Mary be their Mother
and may the Little sisters receive from her hands the tiny Jesus of the Crib
to carry him throughout the world with His message of peace, gentleness and joy!
May they put love above all other rules
and bring Unity there where there is division between classes, nations and races, Unity in the Love of the Lord!
'
