Description

Excerpt from Month of the Sacred Heart: Extracted From the Life and Writings of Blessed Margaret Mary; Translated From the French But principally, if not primarily, the word Heart is here taken in a derived sense, better called moral than merely figurative, to represent at once the subject and the Object of love, all that in the Saviour belongs to love. Such a signification is given to the word heart by the consent of men of every age and race. It has its origin in the physical sense, as we have seen, but goes far beyond it; for Our Lord's physical Heart is but subordinately concerned in the action of His love, and has, moreover, various other func tions to fulfil. In these various meanings, the Sacred Heart, though venerated in Itself and in Its special aspects, is not withdrawn in our consideration from the Being of which It forms a part. As It is the living Heart of Jesus, the thought of It almost necessarily induces a certain consciousness of His divine Person. It is Christ loving and Christ loved; and our devotion only singles out and draws to a focus that in Him which makes Him most infinitely worthy of our love, grati tude and honour. Indeed the Sacred Heart is now rarely presented alone in sculpture or painting intended for public veneration, but is seen on or in that Sacred Bosom where it ever burns with love of us.
