Just as we each have our own unique relationship with God, we each have a different way of being with God. For every person, there is a different style of prayer. Within the Society, all forms are used and accepted. You will find among us women who prefer traditional means: the rosary, Eucharistic adoration, and always, the Mass. You will also find RSCJ who have integrated meditation, Hindu practices and yoga! For a list of great resources on prayer, you may want to visit the website of the international Society of the Sacred Heart.
We invite you to use this Prayer for Discernment, written by Mary Pat White, RSCJ.
