The Feast of the Sacred Heart is an invitation for us to honor the infinite love Jesus Christ shows us in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. His Sacred Heart symbolizes the immense love He has for each one of us. Christ’s love induced Him not only to suffer and die for our redemption, but to also institute the Sacrament of His Body and Blood.
“Behold this Heart, which, notwithstanding the burning love for man with which it is consumed and exhausted, meets with no other return from the generality of Christians than sacrilege, contempt, indifference, and ingratitude.”
We must repent from our past indifference and sins. Let us begin today by honoring Christ’s Sacred Heart. Let us make reparation for all the insults He suffers in the Sacrament of His love. Let us make ourselves among His adorers and renew our devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
