Dialogue Toward Communion

Gathered around the table of life, where each one offers her bread as nourishment for all, we recognise dialogue as the way to a more human world, a life with Spirit.We are faithful to the spirit of Sophie, a woman of relationships and dialogue. From her we learn the value of nurturing, intimacy, patience and love as attitudes of the heart which draw us into communion. With a contemplative heart inhabited by the Spirit, we listen to the world as it shares its hopes and suffering. Here we find the Heart of Jesus incarnate in history, which calls us to new relationships with others and with all creation as one body.General Chapter 2008
