Dear Friend of the Sacred Heart,
It was my mother who taught me to pray…
I grew up in a good, strong Catholic home. Our family went to Church on Sundays and Feast Days and even took a family vacation to visit cathedrals in Canada. Looking back now, I can tell how important my mother’s faith was to her and how much she wanted to share her faith with her children.
My mother’s love and faith supported my decision to dedicate my life to Christ. I’ll never forget how proud she was the day I took my final vows as a Priest of the Sacred Heart!
It is now my privilege to celebrate our Mother’s Day Novena of Masses beginning on May 13th. During these nine days we will honor all the important women who have shown us a mother’s love. Whether or not they are our birth mothers, they all are wonderful gifts from God. Simply provide me those names by May 11. You can join us in prayer during this time as well.
In all our work through the Priests of the Sacred Heart mothers who sacrifice for their families are dear to me.
May the loving heart of Christ and our Blessed Mother Mary be always with you!
Sincerely in the Sacred Heart,
Father Dominic, SCJ
