It’s Time to Repair The Damage We Have Done!

“As the sanctity and merit of our actions depends on

the motive and spirit with which they are actuated,

the practice of the devotion to the Sacred Heart of

Jesus, however holy, would be of little use, unless it

were animated with the spirit and the motive which

                   gives it all its value.

This motive, as we have said, is to repair, as far as

possible, by our love, our adoration, and by every

kind of homage the indignities and outrages which

Jesus Christ has endured, and still daily endures, in

the most Blessed Sacrament. It is in this spirit, and

in these sentiments, the devotion should be practiced.”

                                    (From Devotion to the Sacred Heart by Father John Croiset, SJ.)
