This magnificat was written by Jimena O'Neill rscj (ARU). On this feast of Mater Admirabilis (October 20), we share her song of joy, her renewal of commitment, her gratitude for our vocation in the Society of the Sacred Heart.
October 20 is the feast of Mater Admirabilis. We offer two points for our prayer and reflection.
Inspired by the calls from the General Chapter, our 96-year-old Sister Florencia de la Serna (ARU) composed this prayer to Mater Admirabilis.
On October 20, we celebrate the feast of Mater Admirabilis. This prayer by Marie-Therese de Lescure rscj invites us to ask Mater to "give us the singleness of vision so that we, too, may see the Invisible and Essential in all."
The World Association of Alumnae and Alumni of the Sacred Heart (AMASC) shares with the Family of the Sacred Heart this reflection with Mater Admirabilis.
This month of October we close the centennial of Janet Erskine Stuart and celebrate the feast of Mater Admirabilis. Juliet Mousseau RSCJ (USC) offers us this reading from "The Prayer in Faith" about spiritual lessons we might learn from Mary.
"What most people do not know is that Pauline Perdrau continued to paint copies of the original Mater Admirabilis throughout her long life, though she was the first to acknowledge that she was never able to reproduce the face of the original." (Margaret Phelan RSCJ)
In the midst of our busy lives may we allow ourselves to be touched by the stillness of this image, asking Mary to show us in her interiour life, the source of her total, true love.
