Not illustrated. 1920 edition. Excerpt: ...the city of David, the city of God, His city. How he longed for the love of every one of these people, and they would not give it to Him. Behold Him with the tears on His cheeks: "0 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!" How often would Jesus have taken you to His Heart, and you would not. Give yourself to His love now. "Jesus, whose Heart craves the love of my heart, I love Thee. Jesus, whose Heart is an altar of love, I love Thee.. Jesus, whose Heart is rejected of men, I love Thee. Jesus, whose Heart is inflamed with love, I love: Thee." V. Our Lord covets the love of all souls. He cannot bear to lose one. Think how He tried to win the soul of Judas. He sought to win his love by trusting him. Judas fell little by little, but Jesus reached out His love to save him. In the days of His Passion Jesus made a supreme effort to win His disloyal follower. He gave him a place of honor at the Last Supper, He washed his feet, He gave him the morsel of bread, the "sop," a mark of respect and distinction to an honored guest. Jesus even gave him, as some think, the Blessed Sacrament. He used every means he could devise to win this soul. He could not bear to lose it. Jesus says: "What thou doest, do quickly," as if, seeing that Judas was bent on betraying Him, He hoped that if it were quickly done, there would yet be time for repentance. At their meeting in the Garden, Jesus salutes him as "friend," still claiming him that He might win him back. But Judas would not respond. Meditate on the grief of the loving Heart of Jesus! St. John the Apostle of Love, the "Secretary of the Sacred Heart, ..".show more
