Jesus' heart burns with love for each of us... 06/10/2018, Father Tony
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Last Friday was the solemnity of the Sacred Heart. The devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus was very important in my family. Each of us kids at birth was dedicated to the Sacred Heart. The revelation of God in the Scriptures is that He is a God of Love. Jesus reveals God as love in the revelation of His own heart – His Sacred Heart. The image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a very common one in churches and in homes. It depicts Jesus with a heart which is burning. This communicates a great truth that Jesus’ heart burns with love for each of us. What a tremendous joy and consolation that should bring us. May each of us know deep in our hearts that burning love that Jesus has for us and through that love may we be inspired to love one another as He has commanded us.
This Sunday at the 10:30am Mass, we are celebrating Deacon Del’s 35th anniversary of ordination to the diaconate. He has been a tremendous blessing to our parish in his time here and I am grateful for his ministry and his friendship. Deacon Del lives a life given over to serving God and his people, especially those who are most in need. Please join me in congratulating him on his anniversary and welcoming the members of his family who join us. We will have a reception for him after the 10:30am Mass.
