Devotions to the Heart of Christ, particularly to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Divine Mercy, have greatly helped me in my own life, and I cannot help but hope that others will find them worthy aids to faith. I am concerned that our hearts are increasingly prone to distraction, anxiety, fear and sin. Therefore, our need for the Heart of Christ is all the more urgent. After all, how can we love ourselves and love others if we do not first embrace the love of Our Creator and Our Savior? If we open our hearts to the love of Christ, then our own capacity to love Him and those around us will also be cultivated.
