Solemnity Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary
EWTN ^ | June 1, 2005

Catholic Culture : Liturgical Year : June 03, 2005 : Sacred Heart of Jesus

"I promise you in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the First Fridays in nine consecutive months the grace of final perseverance; they shall not die in my disgrace, nor without receiving their sacraments. My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment" (Jesus to St. Margaret Mary).

Sixteenth century Calvinism and seventeenth Jansenism preached a distorted Christianity that substituted for God's love and sacrifice of His Son for all men the fearful idea that a whole section of humanity was inexorably damned.

The Church always countered this view with the infinite love of our Savior who died on the cross for all men. The institution of the feast of the Sacred Heart was soon to contribute to the creation among the faithful of a powerful current of devotion which since then has grown steadily stronger. The first Office and Mass of the Sacred Heart were composed by St. John Eudes, but the institution of the feast was a result of the appearances of our Lord to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque in 1675. The celebration of the feast was extended to the general calendar of the Church by Pius IX in 1856.

Catholic Culture : Liturgical Year : June 04, 2005 : Immaculate Heart of Mary

In the midst of the second world war Pope Pius XII put the whole world under the special protection of our Savior's Mother by consecrating it to her Immaculate Heart, and in 1944 he decreed that in the future the whole Church should celebrate the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This is not a new devotion. In the seventeenth century, St. John Eudes preached it together with that of the Sacred Heart; in the nineteenth century, Pius VII and Pius IX allowed several churches to celebrate a feast of the Pure Heart of Mary. Pius XII instituted today's feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary for the whole Church, so as to obtain by her intercession "peace among nations, freedom for the Church, the conversion of sinners, the love of purity and the practice of virtue" (Decree of May 4, 1944).

Today is also the feast of St. Romuald, who was born in Ravenna (Italy) of a noble family. Founder of the Camaldolese monks, he was a hermit and a reformer of the monastic customs of his time. He died after a life of prayer and rigorous penance. Before the reform of the Calendar in 1969 his feast was celebrated on February 7, the anniversary of the translation of his relics in 1481. His feast is now June 19, the day he died in 1027. In the Calendar reform the Church has tried to move the feasts of the saints to their "birthday" — referring to the day on which the saint died and celebrated his/her birth into heaven.

Sacred Heart Of Jesus

Immaculate Heart of Mary

Immaculate Heart of Mary image

 


Blessed be the Most Loving Heart and Sweet Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the most glorious Virgin Mary, His Mother, in eternity and forever. Amen.

....Only the Heart of Christ who knows the depths of his Father's love could reveal to us the abyss of his mercy in so simple and beautiful a way ----From the Catechism. P:1439

From the depth of my nothingness, I prostrate myself before Thee, O Most Sacred, Divine and Adorable Heart of Jesus, to pay Thee all the homage of love, praise and adoration in my power.
Amen. - -
St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

The prayer of the Church venerates and honors the Heart of Jesus just as it invokes his most holy name. It adores the incarnate Word and his Heart which, out of love for men, he allowed to be pierced by our sins. Christian prayer loves to follow the way of the cross in the Savior's steps.-- From the Catechism. P: 2669

Are YOU saying that ALL will be saved? Muslims will be saved through their belief in Allah? Jehovah's Witnesses will be saved through their belief in their works for the church? Mormons will be saved by their belief in their church? Is this what you are saying? Because the Calvinist willingly come out and say that not all will be saved, this gives you the excuse to jump all over them?

Are Muslims damned? Are Jehovah's Witnesses damned? Are those who believe in a savior other than Jesus damned?

Unless they all repent, and accept Jesus Christ as Lord, and accept what He taught, they will not be saved.

That is the Calvinist position, NOT ALL WILL BE SAVED. And they castigate us for believing it.

Not exactly. Didn't Calvin believe in predestination, that even some who were faithful Christians were damned?

No, Calvin believed that all who were predestined would be saved. If you were a faithful believer, then you were predestined to that salvation. It was God's choice, not man's works that saved him.

Most assuredly. That is, if you are talking about the ability of man, on his own, deciding to follow Jesus. The Bible is full of scripture that says that man cannot come to God on his own volition. It is God who calls, it is God who predestines, it is God who saves.

Admittedly, I am not entirely learned with the theological differences between Catholicism and Calvinism.

However, what you have written so far is quite similar to what I just read in a book titled "Spiritual Combat Revisited." To quote, "The [Catholic] Church understands this [James 1: 17] to mean that left to ourselves, we cannot please God and inherit eternal life." Also, "There is a tendency we all have to claim our good actions as our own and the bad things we do as not pertaining to ourselves in the same way. The truth is the reverse: The good things we do are the result of God's grace and mercy, and the evil things we do are the sign of what we really are."

I like to put it this way...

If you were to pay one cent for an object that cost $1000, you still purchased it. It is something that is owed you. If the object were given to you, it would be a gift, you did not earn it, it was freely given.

God's grace is a free gift, given to those he loves. If my effort payed for even one second of that grace, then it wouldn't be free, it would be something earned. I do good works because I am given God's grace to do so. Not so that I can buy my way into heaven. It is free, it is a gift, it is all God's work and effort. It is he who decides who he gives it to.

God's grace is a free gift, given to those He loves.

Since we are all created in His Image, doesn't that mean, at least at the point of our creation, that He loves us all?

Not really. He said "Jacob I loved, Esau I hated". At creation, he pronounced it all good, but then sin entered into the world by way of Adam, and it hasn't been good since.

What, Jesus' Life, Passion, Death, and Resurrection, didn't change things?

Yes, to those God chose. There is no universal attonement, otherwise, why even worry about death. Only those whom God chose to adopt into his family will be saved (and no, I don't believe it is only Protestants, either. All who believe in Jesus will be saved.)

Thanks for the idea.

At Sacred Heart Church, Dunn, N.C., Solemn High Mass (Tridentine), Friday, June 3, 6:30 p.m.



I expect that Fr Paul Parkerson will be priest at the Mass, but I don't know who will be deacon and sub-deacon.

I've been told that a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions is available to those attending at the Mass, since this feast is the 'patron' of the parish (someone please correct my way of expressing this).

Directions to Sacred Heart Church:
Take Exit 73 off I-95, and turn right onto US-421. Proceed less than one and a half miles, then turn right onto South McKay Ave. You will see the church and adjacent parking lot.

Please pray with us today.

"In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit...

"Immaculate Mary, most Holy Mother of God and of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, we the people of the United States of America at this historic moment stand before you in a humbled condition of love, loyalty, affection, and thankfulness.

To your Immaculate Heart we recommit and dedicate ourselves throughout the entire American nation.

To your Son Jesus Christ we pledge to serve His teaching, His church, and to work for His kingdom on earth.

O Mary, to you do we flee for protection. Surround the American family with your maternal care; enfold us in your arms. Give to this American land, built on the blood and tears of so many faithful forebears, a peaceful and praiseworthy existence in truth, love, justice, and freedom.

O Mary, we submit to you as the Patroness of our beloved country. O Mary, Help of Christians, enfold the Holy Father and the Catholic Church within your protective cloak; be our shield in the days ahead. Give to the Church true holiness and freedom. Obtain for our leaders holy zeal, the ability to face the truth, and the courage to correct all abuses. Stop the flood of atheism, greed, heresy, impurity, lukewarmness, materialism, and selfishness that threaten our nation. Show to those who have strayed from the Church the way to Our Lord Jesus Christ. Mother of God, accept our personal consecration to you and, through you, bind us forever to the Holy Trinity. Gather us all into your Immaculate Heart and unite us forever with Jesus. O Mary, we love you. Amen."

Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, to Thee I consecrate and offer up my person and my life, my actions, trials, and sufferings, that my entire being may henceforth only be employed in loving, honoring and glorifying Thee. This is my irrevocable will, to belong entirely to Thee, and to do all for Thy love, renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee.

I take Thee, O Sacred Heart, for the sole object of my love, the protection of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my frailty and insconstancy, the reparation for all the defects of my life, and my secure refuge at the hour of my death. Be Thou, O Most Merciful Heart, my justification before God Thy Father, and screen me from His anger which I have so justly merited. I fear all from my own weakness and malice, but placing my entire confidence in Thee, O Heart of Love, I hope all from Thine infinite Goodness. Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee. Imprint Thy pure love so deeply in my heart that I may never forget Thee or be separated from Thee.
I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite Goodness, grant that my name be engraved upon Thy Heart, for in this I place all my happiness and all my glory, to live and to die as one of Thy devoted servants.
