The Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Priesthood

The Sacred Heart of Jesus
The Priesthood is the Love of the Heart of Jesus.
— St. John Vianney

In reflecting upon this profound insight from the Curé d'Ars, the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI observed, “This touching expression makes us reflect, first of all, with heartfelt gratitude on the immense gift which priests represent, not only for the Church, but also for humanity itself.” Grant, we pray, almighty God, that we, who glory in the Heart of your beloved Son and recall the wonders of his love for us, may worthily receive our measure of grace from that fount of heavenly gifts.
