Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Who would dare to knowingly wound this Heart? Upon realizing the infinite love, mercy and compassion emanating from this Heart, how could I choose to offend it again? As St. Teresa of Avila once said, the only fear we should have in this life is separation from Him. On this day, let us pray that all who know Him may remain steadfast in their faith, may those who don't know Him be open to His advances and may all those who have grown apart from Him realize the enormity of their loss and return to the fold. The Gospel of St. Luke for this day reminds us that in Heaven, there is more rejoicing over one lost sinner who repents and returns to the Lord than for "99 righteous souls with no need for repentance." Sacred Heart of Jesus, burning with love for me, inflame my heart with love for You!
