Our Lady of EphesusOur Lady of EphesusEach DHM’s spirituality is characterized by a deep abiding love for the Blessed Mother, the amazing woman who birthed and raised Jesus our Savior. We strive to follow the example of this courageous woman who selflessly said “Yes” to God, knowing that she would possibly have to pay with her own life. She opened her heart to all of humanity – from time immemorial through eternity. As we pray in the Memorare, "Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored they help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided," never hesitate to ask our Holy Mother for her assistance in prayer. Jesus, a good son, heeds his mother’s requests. The Wedding Feast at Canna is a perfect example. In turn, the DHMs have taken as one of our mottos the words she spoke back then, “Do whatever my Son tells you.”


We hope that you will come back to visit our website often - to take some time to meditate and pray with us. There will be fresh new content that we hope you will find edifying and enlightening.
