In the Gospel
through His words, His attitudes,
His relationships with people,
His way of relating to all created things,
we discover His Heart
wholly given to the Father and to all people.
(From the Constitutions of the Society of the Sacred Heart)
The Sacred Heart is an invitation to ask ourselves, “How did Jesus love?” and “Whom did Jesus love?” ... the answers to those two questions are: abundantly, totally and completely; and everyone, especially those who were poor or marginalised. But there are other questions that the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart raises: “How do I love?” and “Whom do I love?” And the most important question of all, “How can I love like Jesus?”
(Adapted from James Martin SJ in America Magazine)
Let us constantly ask ourselves this question, as we seek to love as Jesus’s Sacred Heart did.
This year the Feast of the Sacred Heart will be celebrated on Friday 28th June
The Mass readings are: Ezek 34: 11-16; Ps 22; Rom 5: 5-11; Lk 15: 3-7
