A gift for Spain and for the entire world

By Clara Martínez Gomariz, L.H.M

The spirituality of the Sacred Heart has been made known to us through God Himself, who has shown Himself to those who serve Him with such generosity that they have understood the riches that are reserved for those who love Him. In the case of Blessed Bernardo de Hoyos and St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, the supernatural visions of the Sacred Heart that they received have shown the great longing of the Lord to give His grace to mankind, inflaming their hearts with a desire to spread the devotion.

Sr. Clare Crockett & Fr. William Doyle

By Sr. Kristen Gardner, S.H.M

St. Stanislaus Kostka’s motto was “Ad majora natus sum,” meaning “I was born for greater things.” When Sr. Clare Crockett, Servant Sister of the Home of the Mother who passed away in the earthquake in Ecuador in 2016, first heard this phrase, she was greatly impacted by it and it remained engraved on her heart. She did not want to think only about small, trivial matters; rather, she wanted a big, magnanimous heart and desired to give everything for God and for others. However, we could also attribute this motto to one of her fellow countrymen from the twentieth century: Fr. William Doyle.

St. Augustine, Doctor of the Church, said that the Sacred Heart of Jesus is the Bible. In light of this affirmation, we could consider the following: if this Holy Book contains all revelation and is the compendium of “Spirituality of the Heart” in itself, why, then, would private revelations to so many and such diverse people throughout the centuries regarding the Sacred Heart be necessary? What is their purpose? What is their relevance?

existencia de Dios

By Fr. Dominic Feehan, S.H.M.

The existence of God is a subject of debate in the philosophy of religion and popular culture. There are a wide variety of arguments for and against the existence of God. The Western tradition of philosophical discussion of the existence of God began with Plato and Aristotle. Other arguments for the existence of God have been proposed by St. Anselm, who formulated the first ontological arguments and St. Thomas Aquinas, who presented his own version of the cosmological argument (the kalam argument). René Descartes said that “the existence of a benevolent God is logically necessary for the evidence of the senses to be meaningful.”

SEGUNDOLLORENTE

By Sr.Beatriz Liaño, S.H.M.

fr. Segundo Llorente was a Spanish Jesuit. If I had to choose a word to describe him, that word would be “great” , a great missionary. He was born in a village of Leon in Spain, on November 18, 1906. He died on January 26, 1989 in Spokane, Washington, USA. During his life, he spent more than forty years in Alaska, preaching the Gospel to Eskimos. There, during the long, arctic winter nights, he wrote thousands of letters exuding spirituality, love and dedication to Jesus Christ, along with a great sense of humor. Many of his letters have been compiled into engaging books, and if you have not had the chance of reading one, I highly recommend you do so.

Spain has always been a land favored by the Sacred Heart. Numerous apparitions to different Spaniards, some of which occurred even before the previously mentioned apparitions in Paray, are proof of this reality. In fact, the Jesuit, José Eugenio de Uriarte, in the book, The Beginnings of the Kingdom of the Heart of Jesus, published in 1880, lists a series of Spaniards who received inspirations about this devotion , demonstrating the long historical tradition of the Sacred Heart in this country. Among these are found: Sancha de Carrillo, Lady Ana Ponce de León, Venerable Mary of Jesus of Ágreda and Venerable Josefa of the Most Blessed Sacrament, Blessed María Ángela Astorch, and St. Michael of the Saints, just to mention a few.

Believe it!

By Sr. Miriam Loveland, S.H.M.

The First Commandment invites us to recognize God as God and realize that this means that I am not God. If we remember the last article, the Ten Commandments are given to man as a light to illumine our path. They help us to identify both where the cliff is and where the paths are that lead to death and to life.

We continue to go through the historical evolution of the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, travelling to France during the seventeenth century: the so-called “great century of souls” because of the incredible development it underwent during that time. On a religious level, the growth became evident in several ways, such as the founding of new congregations led by clergy, such as Pierre de Bérulle, St. Vincent de Paul and St. Francis de Sales. St. Francis de Sales started the Visitation Order, directing the religious sisters’ formation towards love of the Word Incarnate, a perfect seed which made the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus grow throughout the world.

KNOCK

By Fr. Dominic Feehan, SHM

On August 21, 1879, at approximately 8 o’clock in the evening, fifteen people from the village of Knock in Coounty Mayo, Ireland, witnessed an apparition of Our Lady, St. Joseph, St. John the Evangelist, a Lamb and a cross on an altar at the gable wall of their Parish Church. The witnesses watched the apparition in the pouring rain for two hours, reciting the Rosary. Although they themselves were drenched, not a single drop of rain fell on the gable wall or vision.
