Living United and Conformed to His Heart
How does God reveal a Sacred Heart vocation?
Usually this awareness comes through a process of discerning where our deepest gifts and desires meet the world's greatest needs. God's Spirit works in the depths of our humanity to help us become aware of our gifts and aspirations, and the same Spirit works through our experience to point out what the world needs from us.
Associates of the Sacred Heart are women and men who are attracted by and live the spirituality of the Society of the Sacred Heart. There is a profound sense of mutuality between RSCJ and Associates because our common mission is to discover and make known the love of the heart of Jesus. We give witness to the love of God expressed in Jesus, in humanity, and in creation. This love calls us to collaborate in God’s transformation of our lives and the world around us.
St. Madeleine Sophie Barat founded the Society of the Sacred Heart to discover and reveal the love of God in a life that is wholly contemplative and wholly apostolic. Today we are over 2,500 vowed religious women in 41 countries committed to bring about a world that is more just and more united.
