Thought for the Day

Mother Magdalen seemed to feel that she could never do enough to honour the Sacred Heart. The original of the celebrated painting by Gagliardi of the Sacred Heart Pleading was done at her direction, and was her inspiration.

(Sr. M. Campion)

She was echoing the thought of the Letter to the Hebrews in her belief that devotion to the Sacred Heart is a recognition, not only of the love of Jesus for us, but is also a proclamation of the fact that Jesus is “continually making intercession for us”.

So today we pray to him, for all our needs and those of others. We pray for the Pope, for the leaders of the Churches around the world, for all those who are endeavouring to bring peace and love where there is discord and hatred.
