Celestine Redemptoristines


The habit is based on Venerable Maria Celeste's revelations from the Divine Redeemer, who wore red and blue while on Earth.
The habit signifies the mortification of Jesus Christ.  The deep red was to denote the infinite charity of God toward the human race.  The cincture was to be of the same color and material, and a symbol of the bond of love uniting all in the Heart of Jesus.
The sky blue mantle was to remind them that their life and thoughts are to be raised above Earth and fixed on Heaven.
The homepage picture shows the original habit as given to Venerable Maria Celeste.  The Celestine Redemptoristines will wear this habit.
