imgAdoration
Growing in a spirit of praise and thanksgiving, we learn to love and compassionately embrace the hungers of the human family.
imgMission
As Christ was sent by the Father, he now sends us through the Church 'to preach' the Gospel to everyone.
imgDaughters of a great father
We communicate the Gospel with the passion and the courage of the Apostle Paul.
imgThe School of Jesus
Mary is the teacher who leads us to the school of her Son Jesus and forms us for the apostolate.
imgIn Prayer
Through the power of the Spirit, we are conformed more and more completely to Christ.
imgGrace must enter everywhere
Our whole day and our entire being must be caught up in prayer. (The Founder)
imgPostulancy
In the years of postulancy and novitiate a young woman experiences life in our community, grows in awareness of her vocation, and begins to dedicate herself to the work of evangelization.
imgChosen and sent
"The Lord could have chosen you for many other tasks, but in choosing you to carry out the apostolate of communications he gave you a mission very close to the mission fulfilled by Christ." (The Founder)
imgJoyful apostles
"Happy those who hear the word of God and keep it." (Jesus)
imgThe Light
The Daughter of St. Paul has the same mission as the Apostle Paul: to give the world what he had received from Jesus Christ. And what had he received from Jesus Christ? The Light.
imgOffering our entire being
We are called to become a communication of Christ's love even in the demanding field of social communications.
imgA life centered on the Eucharist
The daily hour of Eucharistic adoration is a privileged moment in which each one, as a disciple, places her entire being in the school of Jesus.
imgChoosing Christ
The initial years of formation in the Daughters of St. Paul are a school of faith, of discipleship, a journey of life that leads to the radical choice of Christ.
imgSelf-Donation
The novices prepare themselves for a total, free and conscious self-donation to the Father, following Christ the Master in the practice of the evangelical counsels.
imgQueen of the Apostles
Our vocation matures in the presence of Mary, Mother, Teacher, and Queen of the Apostles. From her we learn how to give Jesus to the world.
imgBearers of Christ
"You live in the world, but you are not of the world. You work in the world, but you wait until heaven for your reward. Bearers of Christ.... Bring the truth in charity." (The Founder)
imgConsecrated life
Consecrated life needs mysticism, passion, and prophecy. It gives birth to a mission that is attractive, courageous, and passionate.
imgMeeting Jesus in HIs Word
The Pauline life is not a matter of doing. It is a way of being before Jesus Christ whom we meet in his Word. Finding him we are joyous, speak with him, understand his values, take on his choices. We learn a new way of being and relating to others.

Christmas Greetings from Mother General

Christmas Greetings from Mother General
Dearest Sisters,  Affectionate best wishes that the experience of Christmas, our meeting with Love, will enable us to recount our intimate joy, made up of wonder and tenderness, in communicating “what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked upon and touched with our hands–the Word of life.” Let us gather before the Babe of Bethlehem and ask of him the gift of a bold, missionary and joyous faith. Let our wish for one another be that we m...

Hour of Adoration Celebrating the Night Between the Centuries

Hour of Adoration Celebrating the Night Between the Centuries
«Were he to comply with your request and tell you something of what he still remembers and that you consider useful for the Pauline Family, he would have to recount a twofold story: [first] the story of God’s Mercy so as to sing a marvelous “Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to all people.” And then, the humiliating story of his lack of conformity to the overabundance of divine love and his need to compose a new and sorrowful “Miserere”» (AD...

A Christmas Reflection

A Christmas Reflection
Following is a Christmas reflection by Bl. James Alberione (source unknown): Whoever wishes may receive Jesus in the Eucharist every day, he who is the Son of Mary and the blessed fruit of her womb. In the soul sullied by sin, Jesus lies down as if in a new manger; and he affects a physical and spiritual union with us that is transforming and is permanent by its very nature. Jesus’ mind, which is the true sun, enlightens our intelligence with the splendors of the faith, and it allow...

Our Christmas Hope

Our Christmas Hope
My cousin Sarah teaches music history in St. Paul, MN, at the University of St. Thomas, which held its Christmas concert last week at a packed Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis. Since she also plays the French horn, she lent her talent to the event—no small achievement for a breast cancer survivor. Afterward, she e-mailed me: “When the men from all [five] choirs sang Ave Maria, and when the large choir sang Martin Lauridsen's arrangement of O Magnum Mysterium, I was moved to tears at wit...

Thoughts on St. Ambrose

Thoughts on St. Ambrose
One thing about the new translation of the Mass prayers that I noticed between yesterday and today is how the "proper" prayers for saints like Nicholas (yesterday) and Ambrose (today) identify the saint first as "Bishop": "O God, who made the Bishop Saint Ambrose a teacher..." Their vocation in the Church becomes part of their name. Ambrose is one of those saints whose vocation story itself did not fit the usual model. He was the governor of the Roman province centered at Milan; just a civic ...

Being a Saint in Byte-Sized Pieces

Being a Saint in Byte-Sized Pieces
by Sr. Theresa Noble, novice Daughters of St. Paul The need for reform in the Church is something that ebbs and flows. Depending on historical circumstances, the need for serious change can be great in some times while at other times it is less so. However, there is virtually never a time in which there is no need for reform in the Church because although the Church is the Body of Christ, it is also composed of weak human beings who make mistakes. As sinful humans, each one of us is in need o...

Blessing of New Apostolic Areas in the Publishing House

Blessing of New Apostolic Areas in the Publishing House
October 10, 2013, we celebrated together the end of a long process of revitalizing the areas in which we carry out the apostolate here at Pauline Books and Media. The Central Office and Editorial changed locations in order to create room for the new Digital Department. In the process all the areas involved were repainted, carpeting was removed and the floors waxed. In keeping with our tradition we had a special ceremony in which the new areas were blessed with holy water. Fr. Joe Mozer performed...
