The heart has always been a symbol used to express emotion, hurt, rejection, human understanding, and above all, love. The Church, in its devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, wants to waken us to a God who has hungered and suffered, known joy and sorrow--a God with a heart. The thirty heart-centered meditations in this book dramatically illustrate our need to turn to the heart of Jesus as a way of overcoming modern disregard for life, justice and peace. Shows us that veneration of the Sacred Heart is more than a pious practice. It is a devotion deeply rooted in Scripture and tradition. This devotion is needed today to bring us to the deep, overflowing love of the heart of Jesus--the hope of reparation and the source of redemption for our world.
