May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be loved everywhere


The Daughters of Holy Mary of the Heart of Jesus are a Religious Congregation of Pontifical right that was born into the Church on the 8th of September, 1998, originally proceeding from another Religious Congregation, “ Daughters of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart”.

We are contemplatives and missionaries of the Trinitarian love of God revealed in Christ.

Our mission statement “Amado sea en todas partes el Sagrado Corazón de Jesús” (May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be loved everywhere) reflects our desire to bring the love of Christ to the entire world.

We pray for the Holy Father, bishops and priests so that their hearts will be a reflection of the priestly Heart of Christ.

Our Foundress, Mother María de Jesús Velarde, is the instrument chosen by God to lead our Congregation along the path of sanctity that the Church ratified on the 25th of December, with the approval of our Constitutions.

The current General Superior of our Institute is Rev. Mother María Marta Simón. She was elected during our Fourth General Chapter in November 2017
