Sacred Heart of Jesus - Proof of God's Kindness

Detail of the stained glass window in the narthex of St. Michael's Cathedral depicting Jesus and His Sacred Heart.

Among the many proofs of the boundless benignity of our Redeemer, there is one that stands out conspicuously, to wit the fact that when the charity of Christian people was growing cold, the Divine Charity itself was set forth to be honored by a special worship, and the riches of its bounty was made widely manifest by that form of devotion wherein worship is given to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, "In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge" (Coloss. ii, 3).  
                          – Pope Pius XI

Does your heart grow cold?  Flee to that burning furnace of charity today on His feast.
