As the month of June continues, I wanted to write something related to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. I came across an article written by Fr. Mark Kirby. In his article he speaks about the writings of Pope Benedict XVI~ two of his works in particular, Behold the Pierced One and Spirit of the Liturgy. Both of these books were written before he was pope as Cardinal Ratzinger.
As Father Mark read the works of the Holy Father, he began to see what he calls elements of a Theology of the Sacred Heart. To quote Fr. Mark: "
conquered by love. Jeremiah says, "You have seduced me, O Lord, and I was seduced; you are stronger than I, and you have prevailed" (20:7).
More from Fr. Mark can be found on his beautifully spiritual and insightful blog, Vultus Christi
