Making that love real

global 1The concern of that small, early group of MSC was global, but they began by reading the signs of msc-logo-goyothe times locally, in an increasingly secularised France. Convinced that God’s love was the remedy to the ills of the age, they set about restoring the vitality of the faith in the and religiously indifferent town of Issoudun, 250 km south of Paris (France).

Due to circumstances of religious persecution and the necessity to flee from France a period of great difficulty became the opportunity to expand the mission further afield. Over 150 years after our foundation in Issoudun we are now present in 54 countries and number 2000 priests and brothers.

Since we were never founded for a specific work or apostolate our ministries are varied, but all are trying to respond to the signs of the times, leading people to a deeper experience of God's love for them and making that love real in the concrete circumstances of their lives.

"Jesus was happy to pour out the tenderness of his Heart on little ones and the poor, on those who suffer and on sinners, on all the miseries of humanity. The sight of any misfortune moved his Heart with compassion." Jules Chevalier

Missionaries of the Sacred Heart are currently working in 54 countries throughout the world. Our General Administration is based in Rome.
