Daughters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

“Women inflamed with love of God”, following  Jesus, their unique model, make his feelings their own and conform themselves to him.

“To you and  your Institute he has given the precious gift of his Heart, so that you might learn holiness not from any other source, because  He is the inexhaustible source of true holiness”.      Cs. 3

Cs. 3

“The Lord has blessed you

and will continue to bless you always.

He will guard you

like the pupil of his eyes

He will fill in you more and more

with His divine Spirit.

Young people, He will make you an instrument

to  prepare the healthy maxims of the Gospel.

I bless you

and  invoke  all those graces from the Trinity,

that lead you to holiness,

for you and for your young people.”

(Mons.Giuseppe Benaglio)
