The Heart that Beats for Us!

The Heart that Beats for Us

The Heart that Beats for Us

The Eucharist is the “center” and the “divine spring of our lives” according to Ven. Felix Rougier, M.Sp.S. In fact, he extolled his community, as he does us, to have an “ardent devotion to the Heart that beats there for love of us” December 29, 1929.  He encouraged prayerful engagement with the liturgical mystery of the Eucharist and with faithful attention and prayer with the Blessed Sacrament outside of Mass. Both are essential aspects of developing a living intimacy with Jesus, of taking on His heart. In a summary of his letters, Fr. Rafael Ledesma, M.Sp.S. summarizes Fr. Felix’s work, “In the Mass, Jesus is the love that gives itself without measure. He unites himself to the faithful and together they become only one victim with Him for the glory of the Father. Outside of the Mass, Jesus is the love that invites us to intimate colloquy (conversation) with Him.”

In this light of Ven. Felix and his community, let each of us run to the Eucharist to find our delight so He may progressively take possession of us and transform us into Himself! This is the call our our Baptisms, to make our lives an offering with Jesus for the renewal of the World. This is the heart of the Gospel mystery, the Heart that beats for love of us! ~Mary
