During his years as a general councilor and now vicar general, Fr. Stephen Huffstetter, SCJ, has traveled to many places around the world in which the Priests of the Sacred Heart minister. He is pictured here during his recent visit to India for the district chapter and a tour of the Dehonian mission in Odisha.
Fr. Steve’s second term on the General Council comes to an end this summer following the General Chapter. Reflecting on what it means to be a Dehonian, he writes:
“Our charism is best expressed as love and reparation. I am grateful for the many blessings that God has given me. I want others to feel that same kind of love but realize there are so many things that make life difficult and get in the way. Reparation acknowledges the sin and suffering in the world. Trusting in God, and working with others in community, we commit ourselves to promote God’s justice, love, and reign in human hearts and societies.”
