What is l’Eau Vive ?
L’Eau Vive is not just a restaurant: it carries a much bigger and exciting project. His roots are found in St. John’s Gospel in chapter 4.
As He crosses the region of Samaria, Jesus stops near Jacob’s well.
A woman comes to draw water. They engage in a conversation in which Jesus reveals to her the mystery of God’s Gift and tells her to be the Living Water (Eau Vive) that flows into eternal life.
Following this Samaritan woman who is going to reveal the Messiah to the people she meets to lead them to Jesus, the Missionary Workers of the Immaculate who welcome, serve and cook in l’Eau Vive, enthusiastically spread the gift of god which they have received to all who come to their homes or to whom they are encountering. Through all their activities, their mission is to make Jesus complaint heard: “Give me a drink” and lead men and women of their time to the spring of Living Water (l’Eau Vive) that springs from his Sacred Heart.
Who are the Missionary Workers of the Immaculate?
The Missionary Workers of the Immaculate are spouses of Christ who, in response to His call, give themselves to Him forever by offering themselves as Saint Terese of Lisiseux to the Merciful Love of God.
In Rome, the Missionary Workers of the Immaculate still carry out their mission in some hospitals of the city, with the elderly and disadvantaged.
