Sacred Heart Revelation, Answer to Division in the Church – Oct 16 – Homily – Fr Alan

Views 635


 

In the homily for the Memorial of St. Margaret Mary Alocoque, virgin (Oct 16, 2019), Father explains how the Sacred Heart revelations given to St. Margaret Mary in 1673* point to the solution of today’s Church crisis.

Perhaps the one verifiable fact we can all affirm with certainty is that we all stand in need of God’s mercy. Fault-finding in others isn’t going to make us saints. If we humbly acknowledge our sins, we will open ourselves to the stream of mercy that flows from the Sacred Heart, and then unity in humility will emerge, and the crises in the Church will resolve themselves.

* The Sacred Heart revelations were given in 1673, not 1675 as stated in homily: “[St. Margaret Mary] Alacoque received several private revelations of the Sacred Heart, the first on 27 December 1673 and the final one 18 months later. The visions revealed to her the form of the devotion [to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.].” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margaret_Mary_Alacoque).
