"When next you look at a picture of the Sacred Heart, think of this: Know that the burning heart you see on the breast of Jesus burns with zealous love for your individual soul. Remember that this is a fire that can never be extinguished; it is a flame that will burn for all eternity. If you are ever tempted to forget His love, I urge you to meditate on His words at the Last Supper: 'Father, I desire that they also, whom thou hast given me, may be with me where I am' (Jn 17:24). Know that He will pursue you in love, until you are with Him forever. Remember that the heart of Christ is forever ablaze for love of you!"
Father Benedict Groeschel
