"Sharing the Love of the Heart of Christ"

Cor Jesu had a tremendous impact on my faith, and I will be forever grateful to the sisters, faculty, staff and my fellow students for giving me that opportunity. I still end every prayer with "Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You"...
"Cor Jesu had a tremendous impact on my faith, and I will be forever grateful to the sisters, faculty, staff and my fellow students for giving me that opportunity. I still end every prayer with 'Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You,' just like the sisters taught each of us. It sounds so simple, but when I really stop to reflect on what that short prayer means, I realize how huge it is, and what an impact it can have on my life if I let it. It's so easy to let myself worry over both big and small things in my life, but if I really stop and take the time to turn my cares over to Christ and trust Him, he makes the burdens so much lighter. He doesn't necessarily make the problems go away, but He does give me the strength to get through them."
