The Society of the Sacred Heart in the United States and Canada strongly condemns the gross violation of human dignity that we, along with millions of others, witnessed in the video of George Floyd’s last minutes. We are outraged at yet another killing of an unarmed African-American man, and stand in solidarity with all people of color who are at risk of violence in our country. We also call for a quick and fair legal process to ensure accountability and justice.


To each one, the Church, Happy Birthday! This glorious feast day of Pentecost falls in beautiful synchronicity with our own lives. The liminal time and space of worldwide quarantine is opening. We went into hiding, not unlike the Apostles, in fear. For us, this was fear of COVID-19 in addition to our safety. For many, but not all, we stayed in our upper rooms, creating easy rituals for life in loungewear. Now, cautiously and masked, we begin to emerge in many parts of the world.
