In 2018, the Society of the Sacred Heart organized a Global Service Day in honor of Rose Philippine Duchesne. It was a concrete experience of how it is possible to create “a wave of grace around the world.” This year we invite the Family of the Sacred Heart to participate in a JPIC Global Service Day which we hope to celebrate each year on the feast of Mater Admirabilis. Mary, who told the servers at the wedding feast in Cana to “do whatever he tells you,” continues to inspire us to do what the Sacred Heart calls us to do.
On October 20, let us come together as artisans of hope and do a concrete act of JPIC in our blessed and broken world. On Mater’s day let us consciously and intentionally do something together and offer this as our contribution to the droplets that will create a “wave of hope around the world.” Let us highlight the big and little ways by which we live out our JPIC imperatives to:
- Wash one another’s feet
- Transform and be transformed
- Care for our common home
- Welcome people on the move
Please send a photo of your group in action with a brief description of the service being done to email@example.com. Thank you!
