The Sisters of Life
The Sisters of Life is a contemplative / active religious community of women founded in 1991 by John Cardinal O’Connor for the protection and enhancement of the sacredness of every human life.
Through the centuries, many religious orders have come and gone. This is God's Providence. When the Lord sees a need in our world for a particular charism, He will surely rise up saints to do His work. How long did humankind turn away from the poor and the suffering. In His wisdom, the Lord rose up the likes of Mother Cabrini, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, and many other saints. Now we are in the fight of our life, the life of the unborn child. How sad - to live in a world that allows the legal killing of children. This is a great sin. God, in His great wisdom, brought forth a humble man to be a Cardinal of His Church, John O'Connor. Cardinal O'Connor was a man of compassion. He heard the cry of the poorest of the poor, the unborn, and he responded. Through Cardinal O'Connor, the Lord instituted a new religious order, The Sisters of Life. A religious order committed to defend the dignity of the human person. Please keep them in your prayers. Support them in any way you can.
