Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
The thoughts of His Heart… to deliver their souls from death, and feed them…. in judgment (Ps. 32.11,19; Ezech. 34.16)
At the very core of the true Christian Religion is the Most Sacred Heart of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for the Most Holy Eucharist is that most tender just Heart of the God-Man. This is the fulfillment of the prophecy of Ezechiel: “I will give them one Heart, and will put a new spirit in their bowels: and I will take away the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh” (11.19: 36.36). Thus the true divine Religion serve to bring about this change of hearts – God exchanging His Heart for ours. But only if we would generously forego for our tremendous and jealous Lover all interests, affections, delights and desires that have nothing to do with the “thoughts of His Heart”: salvation of soul deprived of the life of God by departure from His judgments to walk in one’s own ‘lights’ (cf., “Dead Men Walking”).
A most blessed Feast to everyone!
