"Devotion to the Sacred Heart...calls for a fundamental attitude of conversion and reparation, of love and gratitude, apostolic commitment and dedication to Christ and His saving work."
~Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy #166, 172
Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a devotion that I was drawn to immediately upon my return to the Church. For me and many others, the Heart of Our Lord is a place of refuge and protection, and like St John we can rest our heads against His Heart and be consoled.
I wanted to do something simple yet beautiful for this very special solemnity. I believe this visual meditation does just that.
This Heart that loves us so much is loved so little in return. Today and always may we who love Him, make reparation and attempt to console Our Lord's Sacred Heart.
I would also like to direct you to two websites/blogs that have beautiful and deep writings on and prayers to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Heart to Heart has beautiful love poems/prayers written by an anonymous author.
Jeffrey S.J. Allan's blog, Secret Harbour has some beautiful writings by the Carthusians.
Enjoy these as well as this beautiful video.
