His Heart, O So Tender, So Pierced

One Thursday night in the tiny French Pyreneen village of St Pierre de Soulan when I was praying the Holy Hour, I began to feel a tender quality in my heart.

I heard the continuous cry of a young dog, outside in the snowy cold night.

That cry seemed to go straight into the tenderness in my heart.

I wondered as I prayed, if I was experiencing a tiny sense of what His Sacred Heart feels at each and every pain or tragedy, from every living creature on earth.

That each expression of hurt, penetrates His Heart and He responds to it with His pure and immeasurable love.

And that just as He is Himself hurt by our pains and wrongdoings, He is overjoyed by our acts of kindness and love.

All of this can be seen expressed through the image of His Most Sacred Heart….depicted as human, tender, pierced and bleeding, whilst constantly emanating His Holy Fire of Love.

From Amazon USA:

We have found the books (and film) below deeply helpful to us in understanding Catholic France. The Jonas volumes however are permeated by the reductionist ideology of secular academia. Yet they open out a lost world … Most of these have reviews here at our site. You can also find nearly all of these items in the various sections of our Amazon UK store here. (The beautiful French film of Bernadette is sadly only available at Amazon US).
