On Sunday, September 2nd, at the International Center for a Culture of Compassion, the Brooklyn Heart's Home, along with 75 friends from the neighborhood and community, made a pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Compassion. With the blue sky as our ceiling, the woods as our backdrop, and the grass as our stage, we shared a concert of dances and songs as a gift to our friends and a humble offering to the Mother who holds the world in her heart.
