Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

Sustained by the love of God

"The mission of the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is to make the Heart of Christ known, loved and served. Each Apostle, sustained by the 'love of God which has been poured into their hearts,' and following the teachings of the Gospel will dedicate themselves with zeal to the service of their neighbor, not only by providing for their spiritual and material needs but also by offering for them their lives of sacrifice and prayer."
"We are Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, consecrated women of the Church. Impelled by the Spirit active in each of us and faithful to the charism of Clelia Merloni, we seek to make the compassionate Heart of Christ better known, loved and served. We do this by personal and communal witness to the Gospel, commitment to growth in holiness and ministry to the people of God."
