Devotion to the Sacred Heart June 7

Considerations—Jesus-Christ desires us to love Him with our whole heart; now as it is by perfection we are amiable, the more we are perfect the more worthy we are of love.  On this principle could we love our Saviour too much?  That heart so tender, so humble, so charitable, so liberal shall we ever sufficiently know it?  All the plenitude of divinity is centered in the adorable person of our Saviour, He is then worthy of infinite love.

Prayer—I see, O my God, that my soul is like unto a mirror on which the slightest infidelity leaves a stain which displeases Thee.  I will then neglect nothing in order to offer Thee a pure and unspotted heart; at least, I shall avoid with the greatest care all voluntary faults and premeditated transgressions.

Ejac.—Heart of Jesus, strength of the weak, cloth me with Thy strength!
