“Say What?” Monday Catechism Series #8 - Sacred Heart of Jesus

A new series on this blog. Each Monday I’ll be posting a gem from our Catechism of the Catholic Church that is interesting or remarkable.

This week's interesting catechism is about the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

478  Jesus knew and loved us each and all during his life, his agony and his Passion, and gave himself up for each one of us: "The Son of God. . . loved me and gave himself for me." He has loved us all with a human heart. For this reason, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, pierced by our sins and for our salvation, "is quite rightly considered the chief sign and symbol of that. . . love with which the divine Redeemer continually loves the eternal Father and all human beings" without exception.

"Behold the heart that has loved so much!"

"I know of no devotion better suited to lead a soul in a short time to the summit of perfection" St. Margaret Mary

"The Heart of Jesus is not only radiant with love for us, but it is a wounded heart, encircled by thorns, and pierced- this is a Heart that we tried to kill, a love that we tried to extinguish. But our attempts were frustrated by the willingness of Christ to love us even more." Fr. Steve Grunow

Happy Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus everyone!
