| The Adorers of The Blood of Christ, to follow in their
Foundress footsteps Maria De Mattias (1805-1866),
live at the heart of history in todays world with a specific charism, that thrusts
them to enter with a prophetic spirit in different and urgent situations. They bring the
healing love of Christ, become visible in His Blood shed on the Cross, and pass on to
others the desire of salvation for all humanity.
Today almost 2000 ASC women of different cultures and languages incarnate the charism of the Blood of Christ in a Contemplative dimension as well as with the apostolic services rendered among the people.
Enlightened by the Word of God and founded on the prophetic vitality of their charism, the ASCs show three ways to freedom and peace:
- the way of the HEART: listening, enjoying and dwelling on the Mystery through meditation and contemplation;
- the way of the MARTYRDOM: the ability to give ones own life to God, every day, as "flesh and blood" for all;
- the way of the MIND: purifing the memory in the purity of the Blood of Christ, in order to be open to God and incarnate His projects in todays history.
` ` `The Sisters Adorers of the Blood of Christ of the Florence Province live and work in some regions of central Italy (Tuscany, Marche, Umbria, and Abruzzo) and in some States of India (Andra Pradesh, Karnataka, and Kerala), spreading the Reign of God through different cultures.
In this reality, the ASCs are called to be a voice for those who are voiceless, to promote peace, reconciliation, justice, tolerance, love, and respect for the person, so that Christs Charity may be known and received by all humanity.
