“To do the Will of God,
surely that is everything.”

(Rule of Life, Art. 1)

Cluny spirituality plunges us into the Gospel call of Christ, sent to do the Father’s Will. It incorporates us into the Church’s vast mission of evangelization and invites us into ongoing discernment of our response to the signs of the times.

UNION WITH CHRIST

"Our union with Christ, renewed each day in prayer and the Eucharistic sacrifice, intensifies our desire to proclaim the Good News. It encourages us to speak as well as to witness by our very presence ... reechoing the teaching of the Word Incarnate and stressing the Father’s love for all.” (Rule of Life, Art. 9)

AVAILABILITY FOR MISSION

Blessed Anne Marie was at the service of all. “She would have liked to be everywhere at once, never content while there was suffering to be relieved and people to be saved.” (Rule of Life, In the Radiance of Anne Marie Javouhey) Following the call of Blessed Anne Marie, we stand in solidarity with the ‘other’ without distinction, wherever there is a little good to be done. This missionary spirit calls for total availability, an inner liberty to say yes, and a readiness to leave all for the sake of the mission

DIVERSTIY IN COMMUNITY

“Coming from different cultures and backgrounds, we work together, each contributing her talents in a spirit of collaboration.” (Rule of Life, Art. 8) Cluny Sisters are called to be a sign for our world through the internationality and diversity that exists within our community life. Christ creates a communion among us and opens us to the mission. It is with Christ that we build community, a place of personal growth, spiritual support, conversion and pardon, discernment, shared mission and caring.
