Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
“God’s heart calls to our hearts, inviting us to come out of ourselves,
to forsake our human certainties, to trust in him and, by following his example,
to make ourselves a gift of unbounded love.”
Pope Benedict XVI
Holding an innocent, vulnerable, precious newborn baby in my arms makes my heart sing. I can feel my heart expand with nurturing love, hope for the future and faith that God’s heart continues to bless our world. The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, who’s love is boundless, pours out for each of us as though we are innocent, vulnerable, precious, newborns resting peacefully in the protection of God’s arms. The giftedness of unbounded love, flowing continuously from the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, will slowly, graciously transform our world into the Kingdom of God. On year at a time. One day at a time. One moment at a time. One heart at a time. Until we are joined as the Body of Christ, a body of unbounded love giving Glory to God. May our hearts sing, answering God’s call to live in the fullness of love.
Dear Jesus, May your love unbound me from my comfortable existence to lovingly reach out to those most in need of your Sacred Heart. Amen
