Our Work Today


Physical and Spiritual Prayer

Physical and Spiritual Prayer in our Retreat House (Villa de Maria)

A very important part of our apostolate in Totus Tuus is to pray for the sick, but not only the ones that are physically ill, also those who need to heal their hearts.  In some way, we are all sick and we are in great need of God. For that reason, we organize days of prayer in Villa de Maria where we join together in the Rosary and share the Holy Mass imploring God for our physical and spiritual health. We also have the blessing to receive the sacrament of reconciliation, and the priests pray and anoint with blessed oil all the faithful. This is a day of healing and release where you can feel the presence of God and his loving hand upon us.

Our Work Today

Our work includes proclaiming the gospel of Our Lord Jesus which calls us to love and serve our neighbor in need.

Totus Tuus has a twofold mission:
  • Provide hospice care for abandoned terminally ill children.
  • Build and promote our charity and evangelization programs, which help spread our message and will make it possible for us to reach out more terminally ill children around the world

Hospice Care for Children

We have a hospice for abandoned and terminally ill children in Bogotá, Colombia, a country where many children are dying without any care or help. Through the work of Totus Tuus, we provide help to these children through:
  • Residence
  • Medical care
  • Spiritual guidance
  • An abundance of love.

Building a Civilization of Love

In the middle of poverty, and human suffering, as faithful Christians it is our responsibility to help our brothers and sisters in most need. Therefore, we are helping abandoned children who suffer any type of terminal diseases and who are in the last stage of their illness. We help these children while they are under extensive medical treatment and others who are in last state of their illness, when all the medical procedures have been exhausted.

In some cases this means that they have to face all the physical and moral losses generated by their illness. At the same time, they need to prepare themselves for death. This is the moment when Totus Tuus comes in to help them, offering residence, helping them to live and die with dignity, procuring them the necessary education and guidance, and giving them all the professional and spiritual support and all the love they need in their personal suffering in these final moments. This help is especially important in countries like Colombia that do not provide them with the appropriate environment to confront with serenity and peace the end of their life.


And create in me the Will of God,
Have the Divine Will take possesion of me,
Enrapture my heart to enclose it in the Will of God.
Rule over my will in order to convert in Into Divine Will
My Mother by your son´s resurrection, make me rise into the Will of God
Fiat, Fiat Fiat
(Fiat is:Be it done onto me / yes !)
"I recognize myself: As a new creation of God´s Love"
"I know that you love me, my God and I love you with all my heart"
"I want to love as you love and do as you want me to do"
Come Divine Will Come to rule on us

Prayer to San Michael Archangel

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
Christ has no body but yours.
No hands, no feet on earth, but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which He looks
With compassion on this world.
Yours are the feet with which He walks
To do good.
Yours are the hands with which He blesses
All the world.
Yours are the hands.
Yours are the feet.
Yours are the eyes.
Yours are His Body.
