Living More Humanly

In this edition of Sacred Heart Circle we focus on General Chapter 2016's call to live more humanly.

It is a call to understand our identity as creatures and as brothers and sisters to one another.  It is a call to simplicity, solidarity, closeness to people and their experiences, and harmony with the rest of creation. Too often we live as though we were something else.

I am Not a Moderate Muslim

Our desire to live more humanly draws us closer to people and their experiences. In this article Shireen Younus shares the experience of how she came to reject the term "moderate Muslims". Should we reject it too?
Development and Simplicity
This year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the encyclical Populorum Progressio. It promotes a vision of integral human development. Like our General Chapter, it calls us to simplicity and solidarity so that all may flourish.
To be human is to be a creature and part of God's creation. The Global Catholic Climate Movement's #mercy2earth campaign urges us to reflect and act on Pope Francis' call to include care for our common home among the works of mercy.

2 Minutes With Liz Carr

To live more humanly calls us to affirm life. In this video actor and disability activist Liz Carr speaks about her play Assisted Suicide: the Musical.

Called to Live More Humanly

"In the radical style of Jesus of Nazareth, we wish to be in closer relationship as sisters with one another and with others; we wish to be simpler, more human and closer to people and their experience, in order to show forth the joyful and compassionate face of God and to be at the service of Life, wherever we are sent."
