The Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

On June 11 this year, Catholics around the world celebrated the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

A symbol of Christ's tender love

Although this feast is a product of the seventeenth century, devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus as a symbol of Christ's tender love for humanity has patristic and medieval roots, including Franciscan writers.

The Franciscan connection

See the column by George Corrigan, OFM, who at the time was pastor of a parish originally staffed by Jesuits, but more recently by Franciscans.
