The Heart of it All

By Sister Maria Hughes, ASC

This week, we celebrate Lincoln’s Birthday and Valentine’s Day.  What do these two celebrations have in common?

Lincoln emancipated people. Valentine’s Day invites an emancipation of our hearts.

The Sisters of St Joseph practice something called the “State of the Heart” and “State of the Community.”

They gather with one another and each shares the state of her heart. Then, they broaden the universe and share with one another the state of the heart of the community.

  • How free are we to share our hearts?
