Sister Teresina of O. J. and the charisma of Purity
Seeing the splendor of Love’ s Face!


Dear brothers and sisters, the reason for being of the life of Mother Liliana of Paradise, Foundress of the Society of the Queen of the Lilies, has been just the Queen of the Lilies and her message of Purity. A charisma she has communicate through the whole of her life, her writings and the “ little work of love” as She usually used to name the Society.

A charisma which, for the Servant of God, Sister Teresina of Obedient Jesus, who was her first disciple, meant to be like a full immersion in an “ocean of light “ : “Liliana, how sweet it is living in the spirit of purity! I feel like drowning in a sea of fire and light, and the more I go down in its depth the more I discover the richness and fruitfulness of its waters.” (Mother Liliana od Paradise, A sign of challenge, pag. 9)

Dear brothers and sisters, as we, rejoice in making of our lives a continuous "full immersion" in this “ocean of fire and light” we became more and more aware that this extraordinary charisma has got a heart!. A central, living core from where everything irradiates, refers to, comes forth and comes back.

The same Mother Liliana of Paradise reveals it to us when she describes Sister Teresina’s life style: “ It was your daily life a continuous comparing yourself with the heart of the purity charisma, and a modeling yourself on it. In the very purity charisma's heart you saw the splendor of Love’s Face. (Mother Liliana od Paradise, A sign od challenge, pag. 5)

Thus, the charisma’s heart is to see the splendor of Love’s Face which is undoubtedly Jesus Christ’ s Face, Incarnate Love, in the pure womb of Mary. Mama Mary is the Immaculate, Queen of the Lilies, who takes us to Jesus and brings Jesus to us through the “Purity Way”!

In fact, if we welcome the message of purity of the Queen of the Lilies, the Holy Spirit purifying our hearts make us, progressively, able, by faith, to see Jesus everywhere: in the creation, in every man and woman, in every situation both good and bad the life offers us… And while the Holy Spirit makes us experience the foolishness of Jesus’ love and have us “get out of ourselves” in order to bring life, light and solidarity to the entire world, He also turns our lives, here and now, into an amazing feast!
