Sacred Heart 2018
Christ requested this feast of His Sacred Heart to assure us in the latter days of His most merciful love. This is not an optional devotion because it is the core of the Redemption. Our Lord has made twelve promises to those who practice it which culminate in the pledge of future glory in heaven. Now when the world has grown old and cold in its evil the Sacred Heart appears as the cause of hope for all. For those who wish to draw close to His Heart, the masters of the spiritual life counsel self-denial, constant recollection and prayer.
