Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, an Australian community, in a worldwide religious congregation.
Jesus loved with a human heart: with him we proclaim his love to the world.
We work to discover through advocacy, healing and reconciliation, God's presence in our world.
We are to be on earth the heart of God. God has no other heart but ours.

ADVENT: LIGHTS... CAMERA...FAITH
At the end of 2009, the Catholic Communications Network of the Bishops Conference and UK and Wales, put on their website a series of reflection for each day of Advent. It followed the Lights... Camera.... Faith... developed by Peter Malone MSC from the books of that name.
For each day there was a review of a film chosen to illustrate the Gospel message – and for the Gospel to illuminate the film. A written review is available on the site. There is also a 3-4 minutes discussion of the film with James Abbott of the Catholic Network and Peter Malone and so additional sound clips from the film.
Work is being done at present to add five more reflections for 2010, especially the Sundays. However, for the other days in Advent, the readings remain the same each year and so the current reflections on the site can be used and downloaded.
The CNN did the same for each day of Lent.
