Today, as we begin the month of June, a month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we think of, we relish in, we abide in the great love Our Lord has for us. Having just finished the Paschal Cycle of our Faith, here is another opportunity to move more deeply into a familiarity with Jesus Christ.

“In biblical language, “heart” indicates the centre of the person where his sentiments and intentions dwell. In the Heart of the Redeemer we adore God’s love for humanity, his will for universal salvation, his infinite mercy. Practising devotion to the Sacred Heart of Christ therefore means adoring that Heart which, after having loved us to the end, was pierced by a spear and from high on the Cross poured out blood and water, an inexhaustible source of new life” (Benedict XVI, Angelus 5 June 2005).

Also in June, we have this prayer intention of Pope Francis: “That social networks may work towards that inclusiveness which respects other for their differences.”
