HIS MOST SACRED HEART
May is the month in which we honor our most Blessed Mary, the mother of Jesus. And rightly so. As familiar as we are with Mary and the month of May, do we remember that June is the month in which we honor the Sacred Heart of Jesus? To the left of our high altar, we have a statue of Jesus, hands out stretched, with His heart exposed. Have you noticed? His hands are reaching out for us to come to Him and accept His love which is ever present and in measure way beyond our comprehension. Remember the parable of the Prodigal Son given to us by Jesus? When the way- ward son came back after a sin filled life upon leaving home and with great sorrow over what he had done, the father called out for a celebration with the finest of everything he had. Does this not speak to us clearly about the heart of God and the joy in heaven when one who has gone astray comes home?

“The prayer of the Church venerates and honors the Heart of Jesus just as it invokes His most holy Name. It adores the incarnate Word and His heart which, out of love for men, He allowed to be pierced by our sins.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church #2669)

The month of June is almost over. But our love for His heart and His for ours should stay with us always, no matter the month.
