    [Catholic Caucus] The Sacred Heart: Synthesis of All Catholic DoctrineThe Sacred Heart is not a simple devotion of sentiment - it is not even a special isolated dogma. It is the synthesis of all Catholic doctrine, of the whole Catholic moral law summed up in the love of Jesus Christ for us and of our love for Jesus Christ. There is then for us a theology of the Sacred Heart. This theology, according to Saint Augustine and Bossuet, from the consideration that God is the eternal Heart -- God is love (1 Jn 4:8) -- finds in this charity the...

    A Catholic Louisiana farm owner has reportedly lost two-thirds of his business for daring to take a stand against the LGBT community. As most people are already aware, June is so-called “Pride” month. But June is also something else — it’s the month of the Catholic Church’s Sacred Heart of Jesus devotion. On June 2nd, farm owner Ross McKnight of the Backwater Foie Gras farmstead published an Instagram post essentially urging Catholics to ignore “Pride” month and instead stick to the Sacred Heart devotion.

    (LifeSiteNews) — Catholics have erected billboards across Florida reminding Americans that June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The initiative was started by a Catholic couple who gathered donations from fellow Catholics to rent three billboards in Florida that read, “June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Christ is King.” “It seems most people have forgotten what the month of June is truly dedicated to for the last few centuries, and this is just meant as a reminder for those who may have forgotten,” Ruby Galatolo wrote on Facebook. The billboards are located on highways across...

    Sacred Heart and Divine Mercy? Q. I wanted to know if there is a connection between the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Heart of Divine Mercy. The painting of the Divine Mercy reminds me a lot of the Sacred Heart, or am I off-base? Also, what is a good source to understand the Divine Mercy better? Diane, via e-mail A. The devotions are distinct historically but are obviously related since they point to the one and same Lord Jesus, our merciful and great High Priest. But they also have in common the desire to emphasize that, although Christ will...

  • Tender Heart

    All of us know, that when you love someone very much you want to be with the one you love. A Mother can hardly wait to hold her newborn infant. A Father's Joy is to be with his children. Friends treasure the moments they spend together. Sweethearts love so deeply they find it painful to part. We know that the more one loves, the more one wants to be with the object of one's affection. This explains the very mystery of our catholic faith the mystery of the "Real Presence". Jesus Christ stays with us day and night in the...

  • CORPUS CHRISTI AND THE SACRED HEART

    Introduction: The Feast Day of Corpus Christi (The Body of Christ) was requested by Our Lord himself. It was not a feast day that the Church in its wisdom decided to include in the liturgical calendar. It was a feast day, rather, that Jesus Christ requested through extraordinary means by appearing to his servant Saint Juliana and showing her a Moon that he said was symbolic of the feast day that was needed, that he wanted, that he requested, the feast day of Corpus Christi. And Saint Juliana said "But Jesus, we have a feast day Holy Thursday". And Our...

  • Popular Piety: The Sacred Heart of Jesus

    godzdogz ^ | January 20, 2014
    The Sacred Heart of Jesus is an image etched deeply in the minds of many Catholics. The devotion emphasizes the perfect, redeeming love of Jesus, and the living water which flows from His heart (cf Jn 7:37-39). The origins of this longstanding piety lie in the Medieval period.  It was promoted by, amongst others, the Flemish Mystic St. Lutgarde of Aywieres (1182-1246) and St. Gertrude the Great (1256-1302). It was not until the seventeenth century, however, that the devotion became more widespread in its popularity through its promotion by the two notable individuals, and the Society of Jesus more...

    A friend of mine was showing a Southern Baptist neighbor around the Catholic Church. She explained the Stations of the Cross, the crucifix, the image of the Blessed Mother and the saints.Then they came to the image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Baptist was bemused.“Why do y’all have a statue of Jesus with his heart on the outside?”“Well,” said the Catholic lady sweetly, “You Baptists like to ask Jesus into your heart right?”“That’s right.”“We like to ask Jesus to take us into his heart.”Perfect apologetics. Welcoming and kind and working from what the other person knows to what...
