Enjoy re-reading the weekly reflections from the Sisters of The Servants of the Plan of God.
Love one another; even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. John 13:34
During this time of Lent God has been talking to our hearts through His Word and showing us how to love others, especially those who are around us: families, friends and communities. We learn to be merciful and to show God’s gestures of love in every moment.READ MORE
Tomorrow we will be celebrating the Annunciation of the Lord to the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is a special occasion to listen to the voice of God that calls each one of us to a specific vocation. And probably for some of you, it will be an occasion to renew your answer to the Lord in the path that He has already called you to live in.
Before we join the community, we have a time of discernment; which can take up to at least one year. It is a special time to listen to the voice of God that speaks always to our hearts and helps us with His grace to discover what we are made for, who we are. After that time, we go for a month to a communitarian experience in Lima, Peru to confirm our true call.
This year we have one girl from the U.S that is discerning her vocation with us. Her name is Anna. She is from Denver, Colorado and she is living now in our house in Arizona. This coming June she will go to a communitarian experience in Peru where she will join other girls from different countries. We ask you to pray for her in this time of discernment, so she may be opened to the voice of God and to His Plan for her.
This is the first Sunday of Lent. And Jesus invites us to put our lives more in Him, living
more with our eyes fixed on God who gave Himself for each of us. He shows us how much He loves us and we are called to love others. We have a special devotion to the Holy Shroud of Turin. When we join the community and we make our first promise, we receive a
medal of the Holy Shroud. For that day, we prepare our hearts and study of the Holy Shroud through the medical, scientific
and historical investigation. Later we present that work to the Sisters in the Formation Center.READ MORE
During the last couple of weeks, you probably have heard that we are organizing a Mission Trip to Lima - Peru. We are going to serve in a school called: La Alegría en el Señor (The Joy in the Lord).READ MORE
The Servants of the Plan of God is a new religious community inspired by the Holy Spirit as an answer for this Third Millennium. We are a community of consecrated women who live the Full Apostolic Availability, living in community and giving ourselves to God through evangelization and solidarity inservice.READ MORE
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Mt 5:3) Today Jesus taught us that if we want to live a joyful life we need to live the beatitudes. We can see many people in the world that are suffering so much: children, families, young people, elderly, etc. How can these beatitudes be possible in our lives? All we can see is how our brothers or sisters are suffering persecution and that Jesus has promised them that if theypersevere they will obtain the Kingdom of Heaven.READ MORE
“Jesus went up on a mountainside and called to him those he wanted, and they came to him.” (Mark 3:13) We are called to announce Jesus and bring His light and His love to many who need Him, especially to the poor, the sick, the needy and to all those who suffer. But the source of all of our evangelization and service is our encounter with whom we have given our lives: Jesus.READ MORE

God wanted to show Himself as a little child, not only to the people of Israel, but to the whole world. Thinking about the different countries where we are, Servants of the Plan of God (in South and North America, Africa and Europe), we are amazed of how God and His Gospel of love is celebrated in so many different cultures and languages and how many places still don’t know Him. And also thinking that the story of our salvation started with a Little Child and how the faith has spread so much that we, being from different countries, have received the faith is a wonderful gift.READ MORE
