Devotion to the Sacred Heart - First Friday Devotions
Friday, September 10, 2021
You’re all invited to join St. Pius X Church on Friday, October 1st, and every First Friday for Masses.
We’ll offer Masses at 8:30 am & 5:30 pm for the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the first Friday of the month.
Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, is devotion to Jesus Christ Himself, but in the particular ways of meditating on his interior life and on His threefold love—His divine love, His burning love that fed His human will, and His sensible love that affects His interior life, - Pope Leo XIII.
Meanwhile, let’s reflect on one or all of the following verses:
“We the Christians are the true Israel which springs from Christ, for we are carved out of his heart as from a rock.” - St. Justin Martyr (d.165).
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart; and ye shall find rest unto your souls.” - Matthew 11;29.
“There is in the Sacred Heart the symbol and express image of the infinite love of Jesus Christ which moves us to love in return.” - Pope Leo XIII.
Devotion to the Sacred Heart has two (2) elements-consecration and reparation:
- We consecrate ourselves to the Sacred Heart by acknowledging Him as Creator and Redeemer and as having full rights over us as King of Kings, by repenting, and by resolving to serve him.
- We make reparations for the indifference and ingratitude with which He is treated and for leaving Him abandoned by humanity. Join us!
