“The term ‘Sacred Heart of Jesus’ denotes the entire mystery of Christ, the totality of His being, and His person…Devotion to the Sacred Heart calls for a fundamental attitude of conversion and reparation, of love and gratitude, apostolic commitment and dedication to Christ and His saving work” – Directory on popular piety and the Liturgy #166,172
“The essential nucleus of Christianity is expressed in the Heart of Jesus; in Christ, the whole of the revolutionary newness of the Gospel was revealed and given to us: the Love that saves us and already makes us live in God’s eternity. Even our shortcomings, our limitations, and our weaknesses must lead us back to the Heart of Jesus. His Divine Heart calls to our hearts, inviting us to come out of ourselves, to abandon our human certainties, to trust in Him and, following His example, to make ourselves a gift of love without reserve.” – Pope Benedict XVI
