The Feast Of The Sacred Heart 2013
It is sad how feasts like this one have been neglected by priests in the past to the detriment of the devotion of the faithful. Our Lord came to St. Margaret Mary, showed her His Heart and with other things said that even consecrated souls mistreated Him. Pope Pius XII taught that no Catholic is free from practicing this devotion because it is so essential to the Christian life of sacrifice and of returning love by reparation to God. The Heart of Our Savior beats ceaselessly with deep affection for each of us and for mankind as a whole. We must reciprocate by imitating Christ’s life in our own as the saints have especially those with the stigmata.
