***A proposed charism that will begin as an active apostolate for the CAMM/CCMM Combination Division.***
Thrice Our Lady has graced the United Kingdom with visions, one of which had universal influence. In one vision--Walsingham--she
asked for a house; in another--Knock--greater respect for the sacraments; in yet another--Aylesford--she bestowed one
of the greatest sacramentals ever to be given to the world, the Brown Scapular.
However, there exists in the UK a distressing lack of faith.
Heeding the call of Pope St. John Paul the Great to a "new evangelization," we propose the Handmaids of Mary
for Mary's Dowry. The community would be contemplative-active, with a great prayer life from which to give the fruits
of their contemplation in the Theresian Carmelite tradition--"Doing little things with great love."
Teaching St. Therese's Little Way, while practicing profound humility before God and great sweetness toward neighbor,
the sisters will be found in any and all areas of the apostolate.
