The Abridged Plan of the Institute of the Society of the Sacred Heart begins:
In the name, and for the glory of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and of Mary…
The Society has always honored the Immaculate Heart of Mary because it is so in tune with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We can learn from Mary how we too may ponder things in our hearts.
As we reflect on the words of Marie Therese de Lescure RSCJ, we can ask ourselves:
– what is our experience of ‘interior life’?
– is contemplation the essential base of our actions?
– what does Mary have to teach us today?
