"They truly are spouses of the Heart of Jesus who have understood their obligation, and still more their rights, asspouses, to know Him intimately." Marie Therese de Lescure, Conference, 13 June 1947.

Intimacy is central to a spousal relationship. Marie Therese de Lescure RSCJ reminds us that we are called to closeness to the Heart of Jesus. – does it seem strange to speak of intimacy as an obligation or a right? – intimacy is a basic human need, how do you nurture intimacy with your close friends, and with Jesus? – when do you feel the closest to the Heart of Jesus?

"To be the Heart of God on earth means to go to the heart of life with the attitudes and feelings of the Heart of Christ, that was the fundamental intuition of Madeleine Sophie; it is what makes our name intrinsic to our vocation as RSCJ>" Patricia de Quevedo, Conference to Probanists, June 2000.

The vocation of Religious of the Sacred Heart is to go to the heart of life with the attitudes and feelings of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. – when you hear the expression ‘to be the Heart of God on earth’ what does it mean to you? – what would you say are the attitudes and feelings of the Heart of Jesus? – how do you express the attitudes and feelings of the Heart of Jesus in your life?

"We must deepen our faith in the hidden power of our common call, and discover again and agin with greater joy the 'hidden treasure' of Jesus' Heart." Concepcion Camacho, Letter, 1 July 1973.

As members of the Society of the Sacred Heart we share a common call. This call is to discover and make known the love of the Heart of Jesus. We also share this call with other members of the Sacred Heart family. – why might Concepcion Camacho RSCJ call the power of our common call ‘hidden’? – how do you go about discovering the treasure of Jesus’ Heart? – how do you share this treasure?
