Sister Dorosella      

"Something I can say about Our Lady: I like her readiness, she’s very, very much a mother, she’s the role of the Church. I like the way she was very strong, even in sorrow she always managed to follow her son and to make sure that everything was done. Also we can see from the beginning of the Church she was encouraging the apostles to keep on praying."

Sister Dorosella gives his something about Mary in English & Swahili.


"Mary our Mother is the model in our faith, because we can learn, we can know and we can have strong faith in God if we follow how Mary our Mother shown: from the very beginning when she received the message of being the Mother of God and up to the end when she was witnessing Jesus on the Cross. So she showed us very strongly as Christians how we must be in our faith, especially nowadays where we find our difficulties here and there, so Mary is praying for us every time and is calling us, because she is the model in our faith."

Johnny gives his something about Mary in English & Swahili.


"Mother Mary was waiting for us. She is always there. When you call her, she will be there for you."


"This year Our Lady has really taken me under her wing in the most incredible way, so she really is my mother."

Sister Ruth      

"What I can say about our Mother, the Virgin Mary: she's really helping us. And then I like to follow her ways because she was humble, she was ready to receive that message which she was given by the angel that 'you are going to have a son'. Then that readiness, it suggests teaching me that I have to be ready: if I hear the voice of God telling me to do something, I have to be ready to take it and do what I am supposed to do."

Sister Ruth gives her something about Mary in English & Swahili.

Father Vincent      

"When I was young, I remember my mother taught me to pray the rosary and as we grew up, ! & my brother, we used every day to recite the rosary and in that way we developed a great love to our Mother Mary and we have witnessed the great help she has given us, from our childhood up to now. So I am really feeling a great love of Mary and, as a priest, we know that Mother Mary is in a special way, as the mother of Christ, also the Mother of priests, because as priests we are called to live the mysteries of Christ."

"Totus tuus ego sum et omnia mea tua sunt.
Accipio te in mea omnia. Praebe mihi cor tuum, Maria."
- St Louis de Montfort

Saint John Paul II took his motto Totus Tuus from this quote.

"I am totally yours and all that I have is yours.
I accept you for my all. O Mary, give me your heart.”
