Sacred Heart of Jesus

What is the Sacred Heart of Jesus? God loved the world so much that He sent us His only son, Jesus, to save us. There are different ways that Jesus had described or showed God's love for us, but perhaps one significant way of telling us of God’s love for us is the heart, the human symbol of love. He told us that we should learn of him that he was meek and humble of heart and we would find rest for our souls.

People knew this meek and humble heart of Jesus and they knew that it beat with unconditional love for them. Rough, simple fishermen leave their boats and nets to follow him. Learned doctors sit at his feet to hear his wisdom. A tax collector leaves his money table to become his disciple. Multitudes follow him for days, so captivated that they forget to prepare food to eat. The sick fight their way through the crowds just to touch the hem of his garment. And they all found peace and rest for their souls.

The Sacred Heart of Jesus is the symbol of the fidelity of God's love. It reminds us that God loves us unconditionally with a love we cannot earn or ever be worthy of. And he loves us for ourselves, not as we should be, or possibly could be.
