I love how the liturgical calendar shapes life, if you let it. Mass this morning was succinct, beautiful, and powerful. What does the world need more today, right now, than to hear repeated again the words St. Margaret Mary Alacoque heard from Jesus: “Behold my heart, which has so loved men, and from the greater part of them I receive in return ingratitude.”
“Grant, we pray, almighty God, that we, who glory in the Heart of your beloved Son and recall the wonders of his love for us, may be made worthy to receive an overflowing measure of grace from that fount of heavenly gifts. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.”
Lord, make my heart beat with yours.
