    Revealing God's Love in the Midst of Uncertainty

    Society of the Sacred Heart
    The coronavirus has and will continue to challenge all of us. Given these uncertain times, the disturbance of social distancing and the isolation of not leaving home for some, we wish to respond as one body acting in hope as we draw upon the spirituality of the Sacred Heart. We agree with Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat that it is the relationships we build that sustain us through moments of joy and moments of challenge. We invite you to join us in prayer and reflection in the spirit of oneness with our God and with one another as all humanity copes with this global pandemic.
     
    Each week we hope to offer words, images, sounds and experiences as a source of encouragement and support as we call upon our God of Life and Hope in the spirit of trust and confidence.
