Similar Reflections


"This hope will not leave us disappointed, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to us." —Romans 5:5

The Lord loves us so much that He emptied Himself and became a human being (Phil 2:7). Then He even died on the cross for us, although He knew we would reject Him and continue to sin. "It is precisely in this that God proves His love for us" (Rm 5:8). Moreover, Jesus also decided to give Himself to us in Holy Communion, although once again He knew He would be repeatedly rejected.

Jesus loves us perfectly, sacrificially, unconditionally, infinitely, and eternally. To be loved as He loves us would transform every moment of our lives, if we only believed in His love. In His word, His works, and His creation, He has told everyone of His love for us. Moreover, He has always been faithful in His love. Nonetheless, most people don't believe in, and have never experienced, Jesus' love for them.

So, once again, in a most powerful way, Jesus proclaims His love for us through the prophetic vision of the Sacred Heart. For a few minutes each day, look at a picture of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Within a few days, no matter how hurt you are, you will come to believe Jesus loves you.

Prayer: "Sacred Heart of Jesus, I implore that I may love You more and more."
Promise: "I tell you, there will likewise be more joy in heaven over one repentant sinner than over ninety-nine righteous people." —Lk 15:7
Praise: Praise Jesus, Whose heart is consumed with everlasting, passionate love for us.
