Sacred Heart

But one of the soldiers with a spear opened his side: and immediately there came out blood and water.

Today is both the Feast of the Sacred Heart and the Feast of the Most Precious Blood.  Interestingly the Gospel's for both Feasts are exactly the same except that the Feast of the Sacred Heart added 2 more verses.  Of course both Feasts are intricately linked one to another as Christ's outpouring of His Precious Blood is the final sign or proof of his deep and intense love for us. 

That Christ may dwell by faith in your hearts: that, being rooted and founded in charity, you may be able to comprehend, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and height and depth, to know also the charity of Christ, which surpasseth all knowledge: that you may be filled unto all the fulness of God.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us!
