Friends, today's feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is one of the most beautiful in the whole liturgical year. It is about the love of God symbolised in the human heart of Christ. And from that human heart of Christ flows the human and divine love of God that engages the human heart of every human being. In the Bible, the heart is the seat of the whole person. It is the centre of our emotions but also the mind and the will. So when we are told that God loves humanity from the heart, it means that God's whole being as love is given over completely to humanity. And because of the gift of this complete love of God, human selfishness and pride burns away as our capacity to love is transformed by being changed by the love of God that we receive - a love that comes through the heart of Christ. May the heart of God speak and move our hearts today.
