God made tears before He made tranquilizers. Susan Madden, Boston Associate
As an educator at Villa Duchesne since 2000 and through my wife, Lisa, I have experienced many wonderful women who are part of the RSCJ. Their lives beat to the drum of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. That drumbeat is something that I've always picked up in their presence. When I am around these special women, I am always greeted by someone alive in Christ, wanting to be engaged, wanting to share that beat with me. This has inspired my teaching, and I am proud to have known several RSCJ who carry on the wonderful legacy of Philippine, Madeleine Sophie, and Janet. I thank God for them.
Oh, what an amazing journey I have had on the path to become an Associate of the Sacred Heart! My memories of Religious of the Sacred Heart are like pearls on a string … the warm welcome I always receive in whatever RSCJ community I am visiting, the gift of being part of Maureen Little’s journey to final vows, learning to pray with Shirley Miller, Anne Sturges and Jane McKinlay, the fun with Lil Conaghan, the wisdom of Mary Ann Foy. My sisters breathing the same air!
