The symbolism of the Sacred Heart of Jesus begins with a revealed human heart, a heart of flesh. His love is the love of a human heart. The rays of light streaming from the heart and the cross signify His love for all mankind. The thorns surrounding the Sacerd Heart signify the suffering and pain He bore to expiate man's sins. The open wound is a symbol of rest and safety for the repentant sinner. The burning flames represent the fire of Divine Love.
Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus consists of Christ's heart of flesh and His love for us.
The Solemenity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is celebrated on the Friday following the Second Sunday after Pentecost. Jesus meek and humble of heart. Make our hearts like Yours.
