“The change of seasons has been filled with a myriad of bittersweet changes at Heart’s Home St. Ignatius. Jessica and Margaret graduated along with all of the class of 2012. We said goodbye to many friends. Many friends we look forward to seeing again when the leaves begin to fall and tell us that school is starting again. Many other friends go on to great adventures and we hope that, while they were at GU this year, they found a place to put their heart. It was a time of goodbye and at the same time sending forth.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu spoke at graduation inspiring us all by exclaiming how amazing it is that the all-powerful God always waits for human collaboration. Mary’s yes was free! In Heart’s Home we must try to say yes to be God’s hands, God’s eyes, and most importantly, God’s heart.
To live Heart’s Home on a college campus is to very often, “rejoice with those who are rejoicing.” I am continually inspired by the enthusiasm and love I am shown by these students and while it is hard to watch them leave, I am thrilled to know that little hearts, little points, little homes are spreading out more and more into the US and the world.”
because no one can come out of any love story unharmed”
