...we answer God's call - to discover and make known - the love of the Heart of Jesus...





God, whose power is love and whose heart is infinite,
You have called the Religious of the Sacred Heart
to discover and reveal your love
by living as women of the pierced Heart of Christ,
attentive both to your presence
and to the anguish and hope of your people.

Keep us faithful to your longings for us:
contemplative in spirit and mission
desirous of communion in a multicultural world
generous in forgiveness and reconciliation
and passionate for justice, peace and the integrity of creation.

By our witness,
attract other women to this same spirit and mission.

Join to our number those who
have a personal love of Jesus Christ
and are great-hearted and ready to reveal your face.

Give us companions who,
despite the ambiguities of this age,
will lean on the love of their sisters
as they root their lives in you.

Invite to the Society of the Sacred Heart
those who are generous and joy-filled like Madeleine Sophie,
those who are courageous and daring like Philippine,
and renew all Religious of the Sacred Heart in these habits of heart.

We ask this in confidence and hope through Christ,
risen and reigning with you and the Spirit,
now and forever.
