The Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

"We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us.(1 John 4: 16).

Friday 19th June 2020, 11th Week in Ordinary Time is the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

What do we celebrate today? We celebrate the human fleshy Heart of the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity whose name is Jesus. In His infinite wisdom, Jesus chose the symbol of the heart ♥ to make us reflect and believe in His love for us.

What does love demand? Very simple. If I love you, I want you to love me back. I don't want excuses, delays or postponement. St Mary Magdalene understands this dimension of love. When she became aware of the deep love of Jesus for her, she loved Him back. Heart talks to heart. So does St Margaret Mary Alacoque who brought us the private revelation of the Heart of Jesus crying for love.  Jesus gave Margaret Mary 12 Promises of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to all those who shall respond to His message of love.
Today we celebrate the intense love of Jesus for you and for me and His plea that we become aware of this love and return love for love.
