On December 22, 2017, we will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the passing into eternal life of Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini.
“Mother Cabrini had a dream and a passion. She desired to spread the love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to the whole world. Today the Missionary Sisters along with our lay partners in mission and with the people of God who share in the grace of this special charism continue to live this dream.
“This celebration of the Centenary of Mother Cabrini’s death most deeply invites all of us to assure that her missionary dream lives on into the future. As we look to the future we must have the courage to continue to make Christ’s love concrete to all the ends of the earth, especially to the poorest people who have become discarded by the privileged in our various societies, and to whom no one else wants to go.
“We will continue to live Mother Cabrini’s dream by staying deeply rooted in our love for the Heart of Jesus, through prayer and attentive discipleship to the Gospel, and by giving our very lives in mission so that others might have life.” ~ Sr. Barbara Staley, MSC, General Superior, Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
