Each Monday from November 18, 2017 to November 18, 2018,
we are urged to join in a Sacred Heart family communal prayer
prepared by RSCJ from throughout the world
on topics that were the foundation of Philippine's
passionate love for God and God’s people.
May this year of prayer with Philippine strengthen our capacity
to contemplate and listen to the heartbeat of God in ourselves and in our world.
May we, like Sophie and Philippine, be compelled by the love of the Heart of God, Jesus Christ.
May we believe in a gospel vision beyond what we can see or imagine
that “all may be One” and act with courage, confidence and persistence to make this vision a reality.
