Feast of the Sacred Heart – June 23
In commemorating the Feast of the Sacred Heart we realize Jesus speaks to us through words and pictures. Jesus came to break our hearts, not apart but open, to make a home there. He makes visible, and audible, the God who is “crazy in love with us.” Adapted from James Wallace, CSsR

Vincentian Family Gathers in San Antonio
Ten Sisters of Charity and a few young adult friends participated in the North American Vincentian Family Gathering in San Antonio, Texas, this past weekend. More than 200 members of the Vincentian Family gathered to hear Yessenia Vasquez (Guatemala) and Yohannes Bahta (Eritrea) share their experiences as immigrant and refugee; probe the complexities of the current immigration system; reflect on migration from a faith perspective; and discern how we are called to advocacy and solidarity. Sisters Caroljean Willie and Tracy Kemme co-facilitated and S. Terry Thorman provided the music for prayers. Over the two and one-half days, they guided the group through the pastoral circle: experience, analysis, reflection and action.
