This holiday is meant for us to remember. To remember Martin Luther King's stance on justice and peace – a message relevant for today. Also, it is a day to revisit his letter from Birmingham Jail. These three quotes below are just a sampling of his wisdom for us today: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” ― Martin Luther King Jr., Letter from Birmingham Jail


Veillée. We open our hearts, our lives and our ways of being together so we can invite the Spirit to translate what has been into what will be. Many Religious of the Sacred Heart cherish and wish to share in a generative spirit, our experience of Christmas Eve in our communities with a common practice we refer to with the French word: Veillée.
