To continue with our reflections on the Society of the Sacred Heart's Constitutions:
Prayer, the contemplative outlook on the world,
union with Christ in daily living
make us grow in the interior life,
so that in all circumstances we seek
to glorify the Heart of Jesus.
This is a summary statement and perhaps needs no comment. However, I do think that the union with Christ in daily living is not automatic, but something for us to work at each day. I entered 62 years ago today and still remember that I thought just entering the Society of the Sacred Heart would make me a contemplative at least in the aspect of union with Christ. I knew so little, but Jesus called and I answered and am so grateful for my vocation!
