Feast of the Sacred Heart

Sacred Heart

Raised up high on the Cross,
Jesus, Son of the Father, gave himself up for us with a wonderful love
and poured out blood and water from his pierced side,
the wellspring of the Church’s Sacraments,
so that, won over to the open heart of the Saviour,
all might draw water joyfully from the springs of salvation.
