Welcome to Fire in our Hearts

“We hope to promote a grand circle of Wisdom spirituality,” said Sister Evelyn Eckhardt, Fire in Our Hearts Coordinator. “The fireinourhearts.org website was conceived to actively reach out to seekers of Wisdom from all spiritual traditions extending an invitation to reflect on Wisdom  as experienced in one  specific tradition and to enter into dialogue with the wealth of other wisdom traditions.”

Fire in Our Hearts is a sponsored ministry of the Daughters of Wisdom of the United States Province and is one of the creative approaches engaging both Sisters and Associates in the transmission of their spirituality.  For several years, Fire in Our Hearts has been offering on-site sessions – most frequently in parishes and retreat centers. “With fireinourhearts.org we have taken the ministry into the virtual space of the internet,” Sr. Evelyn said.

“To jump start this endeavor, we will present weekly reflections on the Wisdom Scriptures with reflective questions aimed at the exploring one’s relationship with the living God, with self and with others  as revealed in these passages,” Sr. Evelyn continued.

Each month from mid June through November will highlight a different theme. All the reflections are crafted to encourage a contemplative savoring of the sacred texts. In December, as a way of celebrating the holy season of Advent, the site will feature a more extensive and interactive approach to sharing the legacy of the Congregation’s spirituality.

“As Daughters of Wisdom and Associates of Wisdom, we are continually amazed at discovering new depths of the spirituality given to us through the life and writing of St. Louis Marie de Montfort and Blessed Marie Louise of Jesus. We are so privileged and excited to open up this new venue for sharing the treasure we have found to be so precious for our living,” Sr. Evelyn concluded as she invited all to visit and enjoy fireinourhearts.org.
