"What shall I compare the Kingdom of God like? It is like yeast a woman took
and mixed in with three measures of flour till it was leavened all through." -
We, the Mercedarian Missionaries of Berriz
are a community of women
who want to create
a circle of love and commitment
that would be able to help heal and transform our lives,
the life of other human beings
and the future welfare of our earth
in the style of Jesus.
We feel called
to be a sign of the tenderness and mercy
of God, specially for the weak in our world.
We, Mercedarian Missionaries of Berriz, are citizens of this world, a
community of women working on five continents.
We believe in a personal and collective experience of the God of Life, who is
calling us to be COMMUNAL WITNESSES of GOD'S MERCY and COMPASSION to all
We believe that the Spirit of God has been poured out over all reality, which
is called to be saved and liberated, and that we are able to collaborate in this
We believe in our LIBERATING MISSION of sharing this joyful and encouraging
experience of God with all women and men, in relationships of equality,
simplicity and kindness, so that in all we do, we will be a living proclamation
of the God of Jesus.
We perceive that God, the Spirit, urges us, sustains our faith, our hope,
and our commitments. And today, once more, as God did with M. Margarita, God
encourages us to DREAM.
