Message From Fr. Frank Pavone:
Today is the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We give special honor and worship to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in reparation for the sins of the world. This Heart is the core of the pro-life movement, which is a movement of self-sacrificing love. Nothing can stop the love of the Heart of Jesus, which is the meaning of the flame we see. This love is met by rejection and hatred, symbolized by the wound in the heart.
Pro-life activists experience the same thing. Our love for the unborn is met with misunderstanding, ridicule, shunning, and persecution of all kinds. Yet nothing can extinguish the flame. We continue to love those who cannot love us back, and cannot even know we are loving them. And that is a gift of the Sacred Heart.
–Fr. Frank Pavone
