Christ’s heart and my heart. In the depths of the Heart of Jesus, there is a love for each of us like no other. With his heart he loves us with the same intensity as he loves the Father, for it is the same heart that loves us both. Do you realize how strong that love is? It is strong enough to “generate” the Holy Spirit, another Person of the Holy Trinity. With this heart Jesus thought of each of us as individuals during his life and especially during his Passion and death. It was by choice, influenced by love, that Jesus allowed his heart to be pierced by our sins.
I have a heart too. My heart (and yours) is the deepest part of my being. In this secret room, I make the eternal choice of being for or against God. There is no other choice. Each and every decision I make has a say in the choice my heart will make. I feel, though, a great conversation between my heart and the heart of Jesus. As I pray, I see all that Christ has done for love of me. The actions of his heart speak to me and I respond. How do I respond? I suppose that would be with my actions, made out of love for Christ. When I stop and look at what Jesus did and does for me, it is so much easier to make the right decisions. When I am in Communion and conversation with Jesus, my heart is better able to move closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
