As the Catholic Church begins the Year of Consecrated Life, this issue of Heart magazine celebrates the many ways Religious of the Sacred Heart are called to live a consecrated life. As Provincial Barbara Dawson writes in her letter:
The consecrated women you read about in Heart root their lives in God – the God one discovers in the writing of icons, the God one discovers in the washing of wounds or the healing of the earth, the God one discovers in the faces of those who long to learn, the God one discovers in the midst of community and in the silence. Pope Francis urged vowed religious to “wake up the world.”
Let us pray for those who wake up the world, those who have gone before us, those who wake up the world today and for women who will join us in this consecrated journey.
We are so happy to be able to share these stories of commitment with you.
