In preparation for the celebration of the Feast of the Sacred Heart, we invite you to pray this Novena along with the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart, our Associates and Colleagues. The Novena (nine days) begins on June 15 and concludes on the Feast Day which is June 23.
The relevance of this feast to the times in which we live may be understood from many perspectives. Just one we’d like to offer is a quote from The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,
“It is only with the heart that one sees rightly.”
We spend a lifetime trying to integrate head and heart to bring harmony and balance into our lives. Today’s multiple social media sources give us a pretty good picture of how far we still have to go before we are able to respond to global violence by seeing rightly, seeing with the Heart of Christ.
“Heart of Jesus, you are patient and rich in mercy, teach us to be your compassion for our needy world and each other.”
As we look forward to our June 23, 2017 celebration of the Feast of the Sacred Heart, may we do so by joining our hearts and minds to see rightly, to see as Jesus sees. Connect with us on Facebook for a daily inspiration based on the Novena.
