Devotion to the Sacred Heart June 4
Considerations.—Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, gave Himself to us ; it was not for the Angels, but for man that He came down from
heaven. The Eternal Father having so loved the world as to sacrifice His own son to redeem and save it from eternal damnation;
what had He that He gave us not ? We were the objects of all His mysteries, the merits, fruits and graces of which we can apply to
ourselves; they are oiirs. His divine heart never performed a single action, that was not for us, for our salvation. It was for us He
was born in a stable ; we should then through gratitude give ourselves to Him without reserve.
Prayer.— My God, light of the souls who contemplate Thee and strength of the spirits who seek Thee, give me the perfection of Thy
Ejac.—Heart of Jesus vivify me.
