Visitation Nuns of Rosolini & the Sacred Heart

This week is very special for the Visitation Sisters of Rosolini, Sicily, Italy as the entire city celebrates the Sacred Heart emanating from the Sanctuary of the Sacred Heart.

We have shared much about the principal people called by the Lord to institute these commemorations; Mother Carmela Aprile, Sister Serafina, the film maker Roberto Garay and our own Sisters, called specifically in the 1950’s to found a Monastery next to the Shrine of the Sacred Heart.
