SOLEMNITY OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS

Ez 34:11-16
Rom 5:5b-11
Lk 15:3-7

What is holding me back from loving the heart of Jesus?

The heart is the center of our lives. The Heart is used over 1000 times in the Scriptures.  The wonder of revelation is that the God of the Universe has a great Heart for us.  He cares for us a million times more than we would dare believe! 

The fact that God wishes to share His Triune love with us is the most incredible surprise of our lives which must not be taken for granted. Who would ever dream that God would care so much for us to send His Only Begotten Son to die for us?   This amazing grace for us is symbolized in today’s feast of the Sacred Heart.  “Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love. John 1:9

When Christ was pieced with a lance, there came out blood and water from his side. Our sins pierced through his loving heart yet he remains sinless. He carried our sufferings and yet we pierced him in the side, He created us to have a heart of love but we in turn pierced his heart with our wickedness.

The Devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, therefore, is a devotion to the divine will, love and life of Jesus. The Sacred Heart of Jesus feeds us with the word of God and rescues us from sin and evil so that as he abides in us we too may abide in him.

May the Lord Jesus live in your heart and make it like his in every way.
May our hearts be pure, healthy and constantly be burning for love of God and our neighbours. May Mary who ‘kept all these in her heart’ pray for you. Amen.
Happy Solemnity!
God bless and sanctify you the more.

Peace

Osho
