The covers, photographs of hearts in nature, symbolic of Christ's presence at the heart of the universe, bear witness to the contemplative dimension of the Society's "wholly contemplative, wholly apostolic" mission: To discover and reveal God's love through the service of education.

She was a prolific writer, known in particular for her book The Education of Catholic Girls. The Society of the Sacred Heart and schools of the Sacred Heart around the world are observing the centennary of her death from October 2013 to October 2014.

Heart Magazine - Winter 2009 (Vol. 7, No. 2)

In the flow of seasons, the winter months are a fallow time. If we take our cues from nature, slow down, and pay attention, and if we can be present to this season, there is richness in the quiet of winter, in the darkness of long nights (the realm of owls), in the stillness and silence. Here we can be present to ourselves “where chance seeds may grow as the wind conveys them,” present to our life experiences from which to draw wisdom, and we can be present to God – who is very near and yet unknowable, mysteriously present to us.
