Just one week to the Feast of the Sacred Heart

This year the Gospel for the Liturgy for the Feast of the Sacred Heart is from Matthew 11:25-30. I love the fact that Jesus tells us: "Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves. For my yoke is easy, and my burden light."

I entered the Society of the Sacred Heart for this Feast 67 years ago. I knew that Jesus was asking me to follow Him, but I never dreamed He would give me so many gifts and graces. My retreats have always been a time of grace and this one was a quiet one, but hopefully will help to transform me into living more as Jesus lived. The first week was with Oakwood and I felt that I was being called to deepen my interior life. Then, the second week was about seeing the face of our neighbor. I have fifty close neighbors here so I need to really see them and love them as Jesus loves them.
