Happy Feast Day to You!

Today is the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. We celebrate the depths of God's love for us and His great mercy.

There is a Litany to the Sacred Heart. My favorite titles are: "glowing furnace of charity," "victim of our sins," "salvation of those who hope in Thee" and "formed by the Holy Spirit in the Virgin Mother's womb." That last one strikes at something freshly revealed in me.

Anyone who loves language, I think, would like a good Catholic Litany. To some they may seem over the top but to me, they are so beautiful and on the mark.
