Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Feast of the Sacred Heart falls at the very end of June, the month of the Sacred Heart, this year. Here is an interesting article about devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus sent to me by a parishioner.

“The heart” is the inner-most life of any man, woman, or child.
“The heart of Jesus” is His inner life, which was always radiated truth, goodness, and beauty.
“The Sacred Heart of Jesus” is both His heart of flesh, but also His mercy and love—both as a man and as God.
Such love surpasses human understanding.  Such love led God to become man and face the agonizing death of the Cross—this love demonstrates God’s desire for our redemption and our love.
