Last Friday, August 28, was the last mailing of the e-publication Dehonian Spirituality. Click here to read it. David Schimmel, province director of Dehonian Associates (and editor of Dehonian Spirituality), is preparing to retire in October.
“In appointing me as Director of Dehonian Associates, the province tasked me with promoting, especially among the laity, the spirituality of Fr. Leo John Dehon and the Priests of the Sacred Heart,” wrote David. “I knew that Fr. Dehon’s own words and the lived experience of those imbued with the SCJ charism would be compelling reading. In adding a fascinating exploration of Sacred Heart imagery from around the world, and reflections on the practical expression of a life of oblation, I intended the Dehonian Spirituality postings to be a weekly source of inspiration. I thoroughly enjoyed compiling these postings and grew in my own practice of Dehonian spirituality.”
“For the past six years, the weekly postings on Dehonian Spirituality have been a significant way for the province to share our SCJ heritage,” wrote Fr. Ed Kilianski, SCJ. “I thank David Schimmel for compiling these postings. Although with his retirement, this specific effort comes to an end, the province is committed to finding new ways to promote Dehonian spirituality.”
