On Thursday, 24th of January 2019,
eleven RSCJ, who are in Rome for probation
(a period of intensive preparation for final commitment),
received their name and devíse.
Since the time of St. Madeleine Sophie, each probation group has been given a name and a devíse that will accompany them as they live their vocation into the future. While these are a unique gift to each probation group, it is also an invitation to the whole Society of the Sacred Heart.
Today, Superior General Barbara Dawson RSCJ gave this probation group their name and devíse:
And this is the devise that will mark the way that you as a probation community live your name.
to the heartbeat of the world and the cries of God’s people.
and walk with them on their path.
and may your joy become joy for others.
through Jesus our brother and friend
and in the power of the Spirit who is with you forever.
