An Open Wound I kiss the wound you gave me And your heavy burden
“Fátima is a formidable Truth of God, and God’s Truths do not lie in stone in their historical past.”
Maria Áurea, 1992
Aliança de Santa Maria is a Religious Congregation of diocesan right, founded in 1966 by two teachers, Maria Áurea and Maria Clara. The primary purpose of the Congregation is to follow the path of holiness to attain perfect union of all its members with Christ. Having this as our starting point, we try to live a life of service for the Kingdom of God, like the Virgin Mary, in such a way that that “Light who is God” may touch and transform all. Thus a particular spirituality is proposed, marked by our devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary with the specific countenance of the Message of Fátima.
