To celebrate this year's Feast of Philippine Duchesne, JPIC shares with you this prayer guide.
The Sacred Heart Spiritual Tradition
After a year and a half of lockdown, we celebrated Mater’s feast with a Mass in the boarding school of St. Theresa Girls Hostel, where Sr. Rita Pinto RSCJ sang the hymn, "You have many portraits, Mother”.
To celebrate this year's Feast of Mater Admirabilis, JPIC shares with you this prayer guide, which invites us to contemplate Mary's life in our hearts.
At the Colegio del Sagrado Corazón in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, they have been celebrating Mater for 75 years by singing "Mañanitas" to her.
We want to join the Society in celebrating Mater. In our community we have a very beautiful statue and the sisters of the Casa de Mayores, in Guadalajara, prepared for her feast by sharing an invocation to the Blessed Mother who is so dear to religious, lay collaborators and all the alumnae and students of our schools.
The boys and girls in first grade at the Sacred Heart School of Almagro, Argentina have drawn Mater and written what they imagine she might be thinking in that image.
The preschoolers have joined the action of monthly prayer, so they started praying for vocations at Society of the Sacred Heart. In order to be better understood, vocation was compared with the process of making bread.
This year’s feast was a chance for our pupils to show what Mater Admirabilis means to them.
Alejandro Rangel Hidalgo (1923-2000) was a Mexican artist and painter, furniture designer and blacksmith. His mother, Concepción Hidalgo de Rangel, was very devoted to Mater Admirabilis and her son gave her this painting.
May Mater Admirabilis intercede for the RSCJ and all those who dedicate their lives to the service of humanity.
