The Mission of the Crown of Mary's Luminous Light of the Eucharist (CMLLE):
To encourage one another to a deeper prayer life.
to nurture one's faith with the resources, articles and practices available in a variety of ways.
to share and promote devotion to our Lady, our Blessed Mother.
The Blessed Virgin Mary, our Mother of us all, walks with us in our faith journey. If we ask and let her, she leads us to her Son Jesus.
In this journey we follow the models of: Mary's Fiat; St. Joseph's simplicity of life; and St. Francis' faith, surrender and poverty of spirit.
Reward for Fidelity : 2 Timothy 4:7 to 8 (NIV) ” I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge, will award unto me on that day.

"The expression found in Scripture 'This is the will of God: your holiness!' (1 Thessalonians 4:3), though addressed to all Christians, refers to us priests in particular, for we have accepted the invitation to 'sanctify ourselves' and to become 'ministers of sanctification' for our brothers," the letter explained. "In our case, this 'will of God' is, so to speak, doubled and multiplied to infinity, and we must obey it in everything we do.
Pope Benedict XVI:
VATICAN CITY, Homily at Ordinations: 1-May-2012" .
"This is our wonderful destiny: we cannot be sanctified without working on the holiness of our brothers, and we cannot work on the holiness of our brothers unless we have first worked on and continue to work on our own holiness."

“VATICAN CITY, MAY 4, 2011 (Zenit.org)Excerpt from the SERMONS of St. Anthony
The Lord manifests Himself to those who pause, while in peace and humility of heart. If you look into the murky and turbulent waters, you cannot see your own countenance.
The Bishop of Rome affirmed that "prayer cannot be taken for granted.
"We must learn how to pray," he said, "almost as if acquiring this art anew; even those who are very advanced in the spiritual life always feel the need to enter the school of Jesus to learn to pray with authenticity."
If you want the face of Christ to appear in your countenance, pause, collect your thoughts in silence, and shut the door of the soul to the noise of exterior things.
The greetings of the angels and the blessings of God are not for those who live in public squares, that is, outside of themselves, agitated and distracted.
The sweet "Ave" was addressed to the Virgin Mary when she was absorbed in prayer, in the privacy of her house . . .
God, in order to be able to speak to the soul and fill it with the knowledge of his love, leads it to the solitude, detaching it from preoccupations of earthly things.
He speaks to the ears of those who are silent and makes them hear His secrets..
