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
On the feast of the Sacred Heart celebrated on the Friday after the
Octave of Corpus Christi.
