Sacred Heart of Jesus Celebrated on June 27

“Who is there who would not love this wounded heart? Who would not love in return Him, who loves so much?” Saint Bonaventure

Jesus’ heart is a worldwide symbol for undying, unconditional and divine love and compassion, and the Sacred Heart of Jesus has become a sacred devotion for Catholics everywhere. Every large city includes a “Sacred Heart” church, school, hospital or other facility that exists to provide service and caring for humanity. On June 27, Catholics around the world will celebrate the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which falls each year 19 days after Pentecost.

Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, who was a nun in the 1600s, is one of many saints who shared a great devotion to the Sacred Heart. She was instrumental in the establishment of a formal feast day to honor the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  She was blessed with visions of Jesus in 1673 and 1674, which revealed to her several types of devotion, including specific days for Holy Communion, Eucharistic adoration as well as the celebration of the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In the late 1800s, Pope Pius VI declared the feast of the Sacred Heart, introducing the Catholic acts of consecration, reparation and devotion. Works of stained glass and other great art honoring the Sacred Heart of Jesus traditionally depict the heart in flames, shining with divine light, featuring the lance wound and cross of the crucifixion and a crown of thorns.
