May Love Triumph!


Mother Adela, the sisters, priests, lay members of the Family of the Pierced Hearts, and Patricia Gibson (the Chancellor of the Diocese of Peoria) gathered in the chapel at Nazareth House, the retreat center for the Diocese of Peoria, one year after its renaming. On the first night of the pilgrimage, the retreat center was consecrated to the Pierced Hearts of Jesus and Mary during an hour of adoration and praise before the Blessed Sacrament. Mother Adela, using a consecration she had written for the occasion, prayed that "this retreat center...may be a spiritual home for many hearts to experience the healing power of God's love, the maternal presence of Our Lady's Heart, and the splendor of the magisterial and spiritual treasures of the heart of the Church."

A framed copy of the consecration now hangs at the entrance to the chapel so that all who enter may
be aware of the graces they can receive through it.


Bishop Daniel Jenky, CSC, of the diocese of Peoria presented to our Mother Foundress a great gift and treasure.
He gave to the community a relic of the True Cross.  Mother was surprised and moved by such a beautiful gift.
