Heart Magazine

Heart is published two times a year to highlight the mission and ministries of the Society of the Sacred Heart, United States-Canada, for a wide circle of friends. The covers, photographs of hearts in nature, symbolic of Christ's presence at the heart of the universe, bear witness to the contemplative dimension of the Society's "wholly contemplative, wholly apostolic" mission: To discover and reveal God's love through the service of education.

Heart Magazine - Winter 2008 (Vol. 6, No. 3)

Recently you and I have found ourselves caught up in a whirlwind of change, globally, nationally, locally, and probably personally. The changes have been rapid and complex, and there are connections among all of them: the global and national economy, new governmental/political leadership, family finances and employment, international concerns about war and peace, and the effects of the forces of nature. We may be asking, “What should I do? How should I respond?” as we are forced to make big decisions, sometimes very quickly.

"...I cannot express the pure joy that we found in being delightfully together. It was our consolation, in a great purity of union in God alone. We talked by the fire in the kitchen with our heads drawn together." -Madeleine Sophie Barat, Vie de la Venerable Mere Barat, p. 42 Adele Cahier, 1884
That was 1800. Ever since, the Society of the Sacred Heart has continued this practice, in all times and places.

Heart Magazine - Spring 2007 (Vol. 5, No. 1)

The past few months have been rich ones in the life of the U.S. Province as we have enjoyed the visit of two members of our General Council: Sister Clare Pratt, superior general, and Sister Jane Maltby. For this visit, we chose to focus on conversations – with RSCJ, with associates, with colleagues and friends – about the joys and challenges of living a life grounded in and responsive to God’s love in the context of the United States.

"Our service of education and instruction is directed chiefly towards the young and those who bear within them the future of the world." — Constitutions of the Society of the Sacred Heart, par. 7
The sentence from our Constitutions cited above has taken on new meaning for me. In November I attended our international Assembly of Provincials in Uganda, where representatives of the Society’s forty-four countries met to talk about issues related to the Society’s future.

Heart Magazine - Summer 2006 (Vol. 4, No. 2)

“Home” and “homelessness” have been themes running through my mind and heart in recent months. Just a year ago, hurricanes Katrina and Rita forced thousands of people to leave their homes. These same storms dislodged many others from familiar patterns as they opened their houses and their hearts to the evacuees. As the months have gone on, we have heard stories of people and communities rebuilding their homes and their lives. During this same year, our elder sisters at Kenwood in Albany, New York, have begun creating a new home at Teresian House, a few miles away.
