  • Title: About Us
    Descriptive info: About Us.. Priests, Brothers, Sisters and Laity in the Footsteps of St Damien.. The.. represented by the abbreviation SS.. after its Latin name.. Sacrorum Cordium.. , is a worldwide religious order whose mission is to contemplate, live and proclaim God's love in the world.. There are over 1500 in the Congregation made up priests, brothers and sisters and an increaing number of lay associate members in over 30 countries throughout the world.. Our Mission.. Statement.. Inspired by the.. Sacred Hearts of.. Jesus and Mary we.. want to reach out in.. love and compassion.. to the world.. Sr Angela O'Toole sscc and Fr Derek Laverty sscc.. Sector Head for Sisters and the Provincial for Brothers and Priests.. In Ireland, the community are involved in parish work in west Dublin, chaplaincy, pastoral care and both provincial and community houses are based in Ranelagh near Dublin city centre.. The priests and brothers also have a community house near Cootehill with a pastoral outreach to the neighbouring counties of Cavan and Monaghan.. This community is very involved in the development of the Damien Centre youth initiative and in supporting missionary activities overseas.. Bishop Patrick Lynch of Southwark and retired Bishop Brendan Comiskey are both well-known members of the Congregation.. The Congregation has projects and communities in different places in nearly all of West-European countries, in North and South America, in Southern Africa, Asia (India; Indonesia, Japan, Philippines) and on the following islands, Cook isles, Tahiti, Hawaii and New Zealand.. In England, the congregation is active in parish work in Ealing, and Acton West London.. Perhaps the best known member of the Congregation is Fr Damien de Veuster SS.. of Molokai (1840-89) also known as the ‘leper priest’.. He was considered to be the Mother Theresa of his time and spent over 16 years of his life selflessly caring for over 8000 leprosy patients banished to the leprosy colony of Molokai in the Hawaiian Islands.. Eventually he succumbed to the illness himself and died in 1889 on Molokai.. He was canonised by Pope Benedict XVI in Rome on October 11th 2009.. Fr Eustaquio Van Lieshout ss.. cc.. (1890-1943) is another famous member of the Congregation who was beatified in 2005.. He was born in Aarle-Rixtel (Holland), in the diocese of Hertogenbosch, on the 3rd of  ...   Gonzalo Barrón Nanclares, Eladio López Ramos and Mario Ros Ezcurra.. These five men – along with many others – witnessed to their faith with their own blood in a painful situation of confusion, persecution and violence.. The site chosen for the beatification has a great history of Christian faith and martyrdom, like the Hispanic protomartyrs: Fructoso, Bishop of Tarragona and his two deacons Augurio and Eulogio.. The Office for the Causes of Saints of the Spanish Episcopal Conference and the host diocese are in charge of organizing the event.. Our martyred brothers died as believers.. They fulfilled the desire, which our recent General Chapter also speaks to us about:.. "Our desire, expressed in the formula of profession, is to live and die in the service of the Sacred Hearts.. When the end of life draws near, what we want to do is prepare ourselves to die as believers and to make of our death an act of praise for the God who loves us.. In that way, our death will be a witness to Christ, a final act of mission".. (Mission 37).. Novices of the Sacred Hearts Congregation from Ireland and Spain.. The Ireland-England Province has its provincial and sector houses based at Ranelagh near the city centre of Dublin for both priests and brothers as well as the sisters.. There are currently 23 male members and 16 female members involved in a range of ministries from school chaplaincy and retreat work, parish and pastoral support activities as well as missionary support programmes.. There are over 30 Lay Associates attached to the Congregation with an active English and Irish-based lay ministry.. The Congregation (SS.. ) worldwide has its governing structures based in Rome.. Ireland and England constitute one of the many global Provinces.. The sisters form part of a Western European Sector and have recently left England to consolidate their community in Dublin.. The Congregation has been present in the UK since 1956 and in Ireland since 1948 where it had a strong presence in the Cootehill area of County Cavan having a large seminary and novitiate based at nearby Tanagh.. Today the seminary is being used as an outdoor adventure run by the local educational authority and an adjacent property called Damien House is used as a retreat location..

Pope Benedict the XVI said at his canonisation in October 2009, St.. Damien "invites us to open our eyes toward the 'leprosies' that disfigure the humanity of our brothers and sisters and that today still call, more than for our generosity, for the charity of our serving presence..

  • Title: Prayer
    Descriptive info: Prayer.. The Stations of the Cross.. (or Way of the Cross; in Latin, Via Crucis; also called the Via Dolorosa or Way of Sorrows, or simply, The Way) is a series of artistic representations, very often sculptural, depicting Christ Carrying the Cross to his crucifixion in the final hours (or Passion) of Jesus before he died, and the devotions using that series to commemorate the Passion, often moving physically around a set of stations.. Click here to Experience the Stations of the Cross this Lent.. FAITH AND REASON:.. Barron (pictured right) is asked about the relationship between faith and reason.. And, specifically, what do we do when our reason has reached its limit? Fr.. Barron has some helpful.. insights as to how we think about both.. Although you may have heard a lot of discussion about the relationship between faith and reason before, Fr.. Barron delivers some unique insights.. Check it out here.. PRAYER FOR THE ELECTION OF THE NEW POPE:.. Heavenly Father, We, the People of God, gathered in solidarity as did the disciples in the Upper Room, pray for the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the cardinals who will be in conclave for the election of the next Vicar of our Lord Jesus Christ.. May the hearts of our cardinals be open to the wisdom of the Holy Spirit, beyond any human judgment, to elect the candidate most pleasing to You, Heavenly Father, and who will guide the Church at this momentous time in history at the beginning of the Third Millennium.. We invoke our Mother Mary, united in prayer with the disciples in the Upper Room, to intercede for our cardinals to select the next Holy Father in docility to the promptings of the Holy Spirit, her divine Spouse.. Holy Mary, Mother of God and of the Church, we entrust this conclave to your maternal and Immaculate Heart, and offer these prayers for your guidance and protection over the choosing of the next Vicar of your Son:.. 1 Our Father.. 1 Hail  ...   we can find our own way best suited to our personality and the stage of life we are at.. When the Apostles asked Jesus to teach them how to pray he taught them the ‘Our Father.. ’ Each line of this prayer, indeed each word is a disposition or attitude we should have towards God and others.. For example the ‘Our’ should remind us among other things that we are all Sisters and Brothers of Christ under one Father in the Holy Spirit.. This leads on to reminding us of the gifts and graces such relationships entail as well as the obligations.. Both communal (the Sacraments, Prayer Groups etc) and personal prayer are necessary.. P.. rayer can generally be divided in to three groups: vocal, meditative and contemplative prayer.. The divisions are not hard and fast and flow into each other, for example praying the Rosary may lead to meditation on one of the mysteries.. Meditation, usually consists of reflection on a piece of scripture using.. Lectio Divina, Ignation.. or similar type methods.. Here, our own, imagination, emotions, will, desires etc are more at play while in contemplation we become more passive and allow God to become more active.. As St John of the Cross reminds us: Contemplation is nothing other than a secret, peaceful and loving inflow of God, which if not hampered inflames the soul in the Spirit of love:.. “Seek in reading and you will find in meditation,.. Knock in prayer and it will be opened to you in.. Contemplation.. ”.. ….. Click here.. The Father is Very Fond of Me.. Silence with God:.. We do not create it,.. We never ‘achieve’ it,.. We cannot possess it,.. We simply enter it.. It is a gift.. “.. God does not ask anything else of you except.. That you let yourself go.. and let God be God in you.. There where clinging to things ends,.. God begins.. Meister Echart.. “The contemplative impulse is the refusal.. to rest in anything less than the presence.. of God..
