Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus has as its foundation the
Incarnation of the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. On
account of the hypostatic union, every part of our Lord's Human
Nature is worthy of adoration. Hence, therefore, we adore His
bodily Heart, beating in His Bosom. We also honor the Heart of
Jesus as a reminder, or symbol, of His love for us, and we are
moved to make Him a return of love, because He has loved us and
He is not loved by men. Love, consecration, and reparation are the
characteristic acts of this devotion. In this form it is now solemnly
approved by the Church.
On the feast of the Sacred Heart celebrated on the Friday after the
Octave of Corpus Christi.
