Sacred Heart Devotion: June 12, 2018

Our Lord wished this blessed devotion to spread across the whole earth as the supreme remedy to the misfortune of the world dragged down by the times.
Even more than during St. Gertrude’s time, the world had become lukewarm.

It was time to complete the revelation of His Divine Heart so that “this world in decline should regain heat and burn with a new flame.”

The Savior wishes Christians to comprehend the gravity of this new advance of love. He invites His friends to a new effort in spreading to the farthest-flung parts a devotion to which He has added multiple promises.

The saint tells us:

“He showed us that His ardent desire to be loved by men and to save them from the road to perdition down which Satan rushes them in crowds, caused Him to form this intention of manifesting His Heart to men with all the treasures of love, mercy, graces, sanctification and salvation it contains, so that He may enrich all those who wish to give Him and obtain for Him all the love, honor and glory within their power with an abundance and a profusion of divine treasures

“It is as if this devotion were a final effort of His love which wished to favor men in these last centuries with such a loving redemption to withdraw them from the empire of Satan…and bring us into the sweet liberty of the empire of His love, which He wishes to reestablish in the hearts of all those who embrace this devotion.”

— Gauthey, Vie et Oeuvres [Life and Works] vol. II, p. 567, Paris, 1915.

Today’s meditation comes from the May 2016 issue of The Angelus, “Devotion to the Sacred Heart,” by Fr. Pierre Duverger
