Sacred Heart Gratitude for Native Chicagoan Cardinal George

Photo taken at Sacred Heart Schools Chicago January 9, 2013

"Joy is the song or psalm of the spirit under the pressure of happiness, and to give God the fullest and best service possible, we must train our spirit to sing that psalm continually."

Janet Erskine Stuart RSCJ (1857-1914)
6th Superior General of the Society of the Sacred Heart

The above quote is taken from the perpetual spiral-bound calendar "The Life Lived" which celebrates the Centenary of Janet Erskine Stuart, RSCJ - (click here to order). And to order your very own Janet Erskine Stuart Centenary Memorabilia - click here.

Sacred Heart students and alums have had the pleasure of getting to know native Chicagoan Francis Cardinal George, OMI since he was installed as Archbishop of Chicago in May 1997.  I had the pleasure of meeting him in May 2000 during the Barat College commencement exercises when the Cardinal received a Doctor of Humane Letters.

As we prepare for Thanksgiving, I'd like to say that on behalf of all the Sacred Heart alums who have come to know Cardinal George we joyfully sing a song of praise and gratitude for his service to Chicago and most especially our Sacred Heart community.  We pray that his health improves and that he enjoys his retirement here in Chicago.
