11TH SUNDAY OF ORDINARY TIME
Sacred Heart of Jesus, Have Mercy on us!
This month of June is a month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. What does this devotion mean, and why is it so important? I have a few thoughts. One is that this devotion reminds us that Jesus’ heart has been, literally, broken open on the Cross, and that this wound is still there. Even in His resurrection, Jesus still has His wounds. This means that our wounds, when they are opened up to Jesus, can become glorious. They can become reservoirs of Grace, rather than strongholds of bitterness and hurt.
