The Servants of Mary (Servites) is a Catholic community of women religious and lay associates called to bring the compassionate presence of God, in the spirit of Mary, to all those whom we meet and with whom we minister.

We belong to an international community, the Order of Servants of Mary (OSM). Our Motherhouse (Our Lady of Sorrows Convent) is located in Omaha, NE. We have members across the country and around the world. Together, we are committed to a life rooted in prayer, community, and service.

Little Pieces of Light
Darkness and Personal Growth
Revised & Expanded Edition
Joyce Rupp, OSM
Little Pieces of Light offers both courage and solace. It reaches into the human heart, encouraging the reader to approach painful, inner darkness as a help rather than a hindrance to personal growth. In a culture that pushes away darkness, this book carries a radical message: darkness is where one waits patiently for the stirrings of new life to develop. This revised volume offers additional chapters as well as a study guide and prayers for personal reflection.
