PODCAST | Synchronizing Your Heart to the Heart of Christ

[View Transcript]

In this podcast, Fr. Javier del Castillo reflects on how the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus reminds us of our “need to have a heart within us that beats at the same pace as Christ’s, because that’s what it means to be truly human.”

St. Augustine wrote, “You have made us for you, O Lord, and restless will our heart be until it rests in you.” Fr. Javier explains that “we can interpret this as our hearts will be restless until we actually synchronize our hearts to the heart of Christ.”

And, our hearts are made to be synchronized with the heart of Christ in timing, intensity, and extension. It is through these three aspects that God can renew our hearts so that we can truly love the way He wants us to love– in a human and divine way, with one heart with which we love God and with which we love everything else.

Only a heart synchronized to Jesus’ heart can love and can actually co-redeem with Him by loving with His own heart. And it all happens if we allow Him to do it… substituting our heart of stone with a heart of flesh which is capable of Divine Love.
