In prayer we come to Him with everything that touches our life,
with the sufferings and hopes of humanity.
As apostolic contemplatives, Religious of the Sacred Heart root our lives in prayer. With a mission to discover and reveal the love of God, our spirituality and our mission are based in love. Our contemplative outlook is part of who we are, whether in prayer, in ministry or in our daily lives.
"The contemplative outlook on the world has been a call to be authentic apostles of Christ's love, to help bring to birth a more welcoming world, to make known a God who is great, bountiful and tender. It is a call to educate in such a way that God's plan, God's glory, may become a reality, so that all may grow as brothers and sisters in the inward freedom of the children of God, and have fullness of life." (Superior General Concepcion Camacho, RSCJ)
The pierced Heart of Jesus opens our being to the depths of God and to the anguish of humankind.
On these pages, we will share prayers, poems, reflections and artwork that reflect the spirituality of the Society of the Sacred Heart. We hope you will return here periodically for resources appropriate to the liturgical season and our Sacred Heart traditions.
“Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him and kissed him.”
“Everything I have is yours.”
And to us daughters and sons,
God offers this blessing, mid-way through Lent ...
“May all that is unforgiven in you
“May your fears yield
their deepest tranquilities.
“May all that is unlived in you,
blossom into a future,
graced with love.”
This Lent, the United States – Canada Province offers two avenues to engage in prayer and reflection. Below you will find links provided by:
- The offices of Educational Initiatives and Leadership (EIL) and Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation (JPIC) at the Stuart Center
- The province's Formation to Mission committee
All reflections and resources will be linked and updated throughout lent.
