ANNOUNCE IT, AND LET IT BE ANNOUNCED TO THE WHOLE WORLD, THAT I SET LIMITS OR MEASURE OFMY GIFTS OF GRACE FOR THOSE WHO SEEk THEM IN MY HEART- The words of our Lord to St. Magaret Mary Alacoque.
Today we all invited to turn our minds and hearts to the Heart that loves us and think of us more than any other heart-The Sacred Heart of Jesus. We are invited to love, care and forgive like Jesus. To see him more clearly, love him more dearly and follow him more nearly day by day. Through, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we experience the mercy and forgiveness of God-Divine Mercy., the inexhaustible source of graces and favours.

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. We all have fallen short of God’s glory. We are sinners in need of God’s mercy. Jesus is concern about your situation because there is no friend like Him, No one like him.
Therefore, our actions and reactions towards others must be rooted in the perfect understanding of Christ’s love and living it up throughout our lives. May God grant us his peace and the grace to live a life of love and service to the greater glory of his name. Amen.
HAPPY SOLEMNITY OF THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
