Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

There is in the Sacred Heart the symbol and express image of the infinite love of Jesus Christ which moves us to love in return.
Pope Leo XIII

Today we celebrate the beautiful Feast of the Sacred Heart. The Feast of His Divine Love.  The Feast of His great love for us.  In Him is a real beating heart just like ours, in Him is a real human love, that loves with deep emotion and feeling, just like we do.  When you find your heart broken and weary, remember, Christ's Heart, too, was broken and weary...  unite your heart to His.  And what better way has Christ Himself allowed us to be totally united with Him but in the Holy Eucharist.  We become one with Him yet how often we forget this, take advantage of this... or don't take advantage of this.  Today is the day to renew our love and devotion to Him. 

Come to me, all you that labour, and are burdened, and I will refresh you.
Matthew 11:28
