Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

Sacred Heart of Jesus

 

Excerpt from:  The Sacred Heart and the Priesthood: Mother Louise Margaret Claret de la Touche, pg. 182:

Depth! Let us go to the Heart of Jesus. Through the wide opening which the lance has made in It, let us look into this abyss of divine Charity; let us seek to sound its depths. But no! Thy soul is seized with dizziness before this abyss of Love. One must shut one’s eyes, abandon every support, and let oneself fall, fall, fall without end in these divine depths, without seeking to understand, without wishing to explain: Love is not explained! It is desired, it is wished for, it is tasted, we are inebriated with it, we live on it, we die of it: we do not understand it. O the depths….!

  1. Yesterday I “officially” joined the local chapter of the third order Passionists. I’d been thinking about doing it for some years now, ever since I dreamt of St. Gemma Galgani. This is a prayer group that follows a spiritual path that leads to a temporary consecration which is renewed for two years and then a permanent consecration in the third year.

    I noticed just before I sent the form, that it was the feast of the Sacred Heart. That made it all the more special.

  2. Anon, thank you…

    Pia, I’m so happy for you. I know it’s something you’ve been thinking about for quite a while. And being moved to send the form on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus…well, we aren’t surprised by these things anymore, are we. I will just sit here and meditate on your experience for a while.
