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.
The people of Advent are "us". The Baptist prods us on to newness, and the Zachariah in us resists until our Elizabeth insists. Our Joseph lets it happen, and the young Mary in us seizes the gift and runs with it. It must be so if the Christ in us is to be born. ~ Elizabeth Meluch
