What is the mystery of the Sacred Heart of Jesus? Pope
Francis: “The transfigured heart of Christ is the heart of
revelation, the heart of our faith, because he makes
himself small; he has chosen this way, that of humbling
himself, of emptying himself even to the death on the
cross. It is a choice of smallness, so that the glory of God
may be manifest.” Our devotion to the Sacred Heart of
Jesus must embrace this mystery of smallness, this
attitude of humility, otherwise our devotion may remain
pietistic. The grace flowing from his pierced heart will not
be able to transform us.
