       Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus : June 3,2016

The Heart of Jesus, centre of gravity and source of momentum.

Through the visible wound of Christ we see the Father’s invisible wound of love*.

For the Heart of Jesus is the entrance door to the mystery of the Father’s love.

The humble and gentle Heart of Christ is the threshold to be crossed in order to make known the Heart of the Father, in his tenderness and mercy.

In this way, the Heart of Jesus offers itself as the in and out door : go in for contemplation – give adoration to the God of tenderness and mercy- and go out for mission – service with a gentle and humble heart.

« If anyone enters through me, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. » Jn. 10:9

This door is none other than a wound of love that opens the road to salvation.

The Sister of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is called to live each day from this mystery of love in the secret of her heart and in her passion for service.

May the Heart of Jesus be the centre of gravity of our existence and the springboard that gives momentum to our mission.

Have a wonderful feast of the Sacred Heart in this Jubilee Year of our Bicentennial !
