Heart of Jesus chooses to suffer for humanity
We Adore you O Lord and we love You
-Because by Your Sacred Heart You have made manifest Your Love
The anguish of Jesus, the pain of surrender which his human will feels at the final and complete submersion with the Divine Will. This is experienced most fully by that physical, human organ where the two have dwelt together: the heart. The anguish is so real that the heart beats with enough intensity to burst the capillaries of Jesus’ flesh and so, push blood-tinged sweat out of His pores. Divine Love, expressed so eloquently in the priestly prayer in the Gospel of St. John, is made physically manifest in the work of the Sacred Heart to bring that prayer to fruition.
Oh Sacred Heart of Jesus, teach us how to surrender to the Will of the Father
