Prayer of the Day
Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of JesusJune 12th, 2015
The blood that flows from Jesus’ side symbolises his death, which he accepts so as to save humanity; it is and expression of his glory and of his love to the end, from his pierced side comes love. The water that comes out also represents the Spirit, source of life. The blood and water witness to his love proclaimed and communicated, is poured out into the hearts of believers by the Spirit. The divine plan of love is fulfilled in Jesus in the outpouring of blood and water, now it is the time for men and women to realise its fulfilment. In this fulfilment, we shall be aided by the Spirit that flows from the pierced side of Jesus, transforming us into a new humanity, capable of loving and of becoming children of God.
