Quo Vadis?: Manning, social justice and the Sacred Heart
In the light of earlier posts, just a quote which I think is a perfect reflection to bring to this image of the Sacred Heart.
H. E. Manning. The Glories of the Sacred Heart, 1895, pp162-3 READ HERE
More than ever before, this Lent the Church - from the very top to the very bottom- needs to return with a sense of urgency to the devotion to the Sacred Heart and humbly pray ' Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.' Now, with the church in crisis and flux we must place ALL our trust in the loving and merciful Heart of Jesus. The Church must look outwards to the problems of a deeply materialistic and secular world and draw all its strength from energy of God's love that radiates from the very heart of God. 19th century London was fortunate in having a leader like Cardinal Manning who understood the problems of his day and also understood how solving those problems required us to be close to the Heart of Christ. We so badly need people in the Church today who have - like Manning - a vision of the Sacred Heart at the heart of the Church's mission.
