In honor of the 200th anniversary of Philippine’s act of courage and conviction, on November 18, 2017, the Society launches two important and interconnected opportunities for RSCJ and the whole Sacred Heart family.
The Sacred Heart Spiritual Tradition
October 20 is the feast of Mater Admirabilis. We offer two points for our prayer and reflection.
The presentations of the featured speakers at the Spirituality Forum 2017 are now available on the bicentennial website of the USC Province.
In 1818, Philippine Duchesne and her companions landed in the New World on the feast of the Sacred Heart. In honor of that auspicious moment, the United States-Canada Province begins the celebration of the Bicentennial on this feast!
For the Feast of the Sacred Heart, which we celebrate on the 23rd of June, each member of the Central Team shares a message and a prayer.
In her letter for the Feast of the Sacred Heart to our Sisters and Associates and Partners in mission, Sister Barbara Dawson shares how the gospel of this feast gives each one of us an invitation and a compass.
HAPPY FEAST OF SAINT MADELEINE SOPHIE BARAT!
We offer a quote from Sophie and a video to celebrate the grace of our vocation.
A prayer has been written for the celebration of the Bicentennial of Rose Philippine Duchesne.
As we prepare for the feast of Philippine Duchesne on November 18, these extracts from a letter and conference of Helen McLaughlin rscj (Superior General in the year of Philippine's canonization) invite us to reflect: What is Philippine trying to communicate to us today?
Inspired by the calls from the General Chapter, our 96-year-old Sister Florencia de la Serna (ARU) composed this prayer to Mater Admirabilis.
