Grace is a'flowin!

Today Mother Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ. We stand in awe of the love that God has for us, especially God the Son, who took on our own human flesh and endured countless humiliations, temptations, trials and sufferings all so that He might be able to climb up on the Cross and offer Himself for us, that His Sacred Heart might be pierced and Blood and Water would wash over us and from His pierced side the Church would be born and we might find in her the means to our salvation. What a God we have! 

Also, today there is a plenary indulgence available for all who publicly recite (if able to do so publicly) the Act of Reparation found HERE, with the usual conditions - detachment from all sin, reception of Holy Communion, prayer for the intentions of the Holy Father (an Our Father and Hail Mary suffice) and sacramental confession within the week. Don't miss this opportunity for grace!!!
