On the Calendar: The Sacred Heart of Jesus

Artist Unknown, For God So Loved the World

“O Wound of Mercy, Heart of Jesus,
Hide me in Your depths as a drop of Your own blood, and do not let me out forever!
Lock me in Your depths, and do You Yourself teach me to love You!
Eternal Love, do You Yourself form my soul, that it be made capable of returning Your love.
O living Love, enable me to love You forever. I yearn to eternally reciprocate Your love.
O Christ, a single glance from You is dearer to me than a thousand worlds, than all heaven itself.”

– St. Faustina Kowalska, Diary #1631

G. Corrado, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque Contemplating the Sacred Heart of Jesus, 1765

 

“This divine Heart is an abyss of all blessings, and into it the poor should submerge all their needs. It is an abyss of joy in which all of us can immerse our sorrows. It is an abyss of lowliness to counteract our foolishness, an abyss of mercy for the wretched, an abyss of love to meet our every need.”

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
