We, the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, 
are members of an active congregation dedicated to 
making God’s goodness visible within our contacts with the world, 
and with all objects, animals and people around us, perhaps even increasing this. 
We have been called to follow the way of the heart.

The time in

Local pastoral care

We brothers within the MSC congregation working in local pastoraal care, wish to continue working both for the world-wide Church and for local communities (parishes) because we are keen to remain part of the whole. However, being part of the whole does not mean that we would hestitate in making our own particular feelings known in a positive way, even if these should differ from what is ‘normal and acceptable within the church.’

We are keen to promote unity within the Church, in the hope that this may be a ‘unity within diversity’. We support ‘unity within diversity’ because we believe that this is the way which, ultimately, will be most succesful. We believe in one large Christian community with leaders, men and women, who believe in a Church which is succesful in retaining an open mind towards the times in which she lives.
