Kolkata Mary Ward Social Centre
Noelle Corscadden IBVM Institute Leader
When we visit sisters around the world in our work, I am touched to see that Mary Ward's extraordinary spirit and charism still lives on. There are people who work in the most extraordinary places in the world facing incredible difficulties and challenges, yet these people have the strength of Mary Ward and the ability to maintain her charism
Mary Ward (1585-1645)
Divine love is like a fire which
will not let itself be shut up
for it is impossible to love God
and not to labour to extend God's honour.
Teresa Ball IBVM (1794-1861)
We must not control the Spirit of God, which breathes where and when it will.
