The Daughters of Mary, Mother of Healing Love are a private Association of Roman Catholic consecrated women who profess the vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience.  We believe that the Church is the Bride of Christ and that we, as religious women, are called to personify this mystery.  For this reason we wear the full religious habit and we are under the authority of our diocesan Bishop and our Holy Father; we know that it is really Jesus Christ, our Bridegroom Whom we are submitting to when we obey legitimate authority in His Church.
