Ave Maria Meditations
The Heart of Christ is the clearest image of the fullness of God embracing all things. By this we mean the fullness of mercy which is the special characteristic of the New Testament. (Pope Pius XII)
Devotion to the Sacred Heart is the most excellent form of religion. (Pope Leo XIII)
Lord Jesus Christ, I believe in You as my God and Savior. Make me more faithful to Your Gospel by sharing in the Eucharist often. May I come to live more fully the life of grace You have given me. Keep Your love alive in my heart that I may become worthy of You. Teach me to value Your gifts and ever be grateful for them. Help me to strive for eternal life.
The font of life which spills over the whole world flows from the wounded Heart of Christ.(Latern Baptistry)
Behold this Heart which has so loved man.
(Our Lord to St. Margaret Mary)
