PODCAST | The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
On the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Fr. Javier del Castillo (Vicar of Opus Dei in the Midwest) reflects on three ways in which we can draw closer to the Heart of Christ.
What You’ll Hear:
– How the Sacraments of the Church are “born” from the Sacred Heart of Jesus
– How God gives us a renewed heart
– The three ways that we can identify ourselves with the Heart of Christ
– Living the “Heroic Minute”
– How the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Christ are closely connected
“There’s nothing left to give, on Jesus’ part, in order for us to be saved. He has been totally magnanimous, big souled, bighearted, on our behalf, so that we can share in His divinity.”
“What do we really treasure [in our heart]? Is it salvation of souls, or is it ourselves?”
“Our Lord loves humanity. In fact, he became incarnate and took on a human heart Himself in order to show us how much we can love with our own heart of flesh, if we let him and let grace actually renew it and take over. But we have to give Him permission.”
“We need to have a heart within us that beats at the same pace as Christ’s, because that is what is means to be truly human. Our hearts slow down when we think too much about ourselves. And we need to put a divine pacemaker in our hearts, or get a transplant, so that we can truly love in the way God wants us to love, in a human and divine way.”
“You have made us for you, O Lord, and restless will our heart be until it rests in you.” (St. Augustine)
