    One thing is for certain, in order to wholly live out the mission of the Society of the Sacred Heart, the collective Sacred Heart community must commit to the ongoing work of anti-racism. This work is never completed, but an extension of our call to love each day we walk this earth.
  • Everyone loves family first. But too many of us have forgotten that as children of one Father, we are bonded in a kinship relationship with every created being. The Incarnation reveals definitively that the Heart of God beats at the center of the entire network of life. 
  • On October 2, we celebrate the Feast of the Guardian Angels, those recognized as Saints and those whose presence and absence guides us in a time when we are physically distant but connected through our contemplative lives.  In this season of change, as the leaves teach us again to let go of what is no longer needed and release into the promise of Spring resurrection, we draw upon the wisdom of Saint Francis.  
  • This moment in religious life is generating interest and energy around how congregations can adapt to what is been asked of us today in the cries of the world and cries of the earth. This book brings together God's call, the world's needs and charisms in consecrated life in a way that dynamically engages the vows, prayer, community and ministry for the particular time and contexts in which we live. Here is a valuable theological and pastoral resource for the conversion, transformation and revitalization needed in consecrated life today.
