The experience of God’s love changes our way of seeing life. As our Constitutions reminds us, we are called to enter into the dispositions of God’s Heart, to learn to contemplate reality with His Heart. This abiding love in Jesus is generative and calls us out of ourselves.
As Religious of the Sacred Heart our rootedness in God’s love is “a powerful force of conversion and transforms us for mission.” This is a call and a powerful force to reach new frontiers. Not only geographical frontiers but existential frontiers, frontiers inside us, frontiers between us. Receiving God’s love in our very being draws us into the suffering of humanity. It invites us to face the pain of people and our world, and compels us to participate actively in God’s work of reconciliation.
