Devotion to the Sacred Heart: Twenty Fifth day

The wound on the Sacred Heart

The passion of our Divine Savior did not end with His crucifixion. Even after His death, one soldier thrust his lance into His side and immediately blood and water flowed out, thus shedding even the last drop of His blood for the salvation of mankind. O! Miraculous love and grace of our Savior! Why does mankind not deter from sinning seeing Your infinite kindness and grace, which is even a question of envy among angels. He shed His last drop of blood for us out of the goodness and charity of His heart, though He has not shown such grace and mercy to the exiled spirits. When Jesus died darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon because of an eclipse of the sun, earth quaked and rocks were split. But our unrepentant heart proves that it is hardened than those rocks. Do you ever meditate how Jesus after His resurrection appeared to unbelieving Thomas and asked him to put his hand into His side and not be unbelieving but believe.

Thomas understanding the immense love of His master cried out “My Lord and my God!” Why don’t you cry out like St. Thomas? All the blessings you received and the blessings to come, spring from the goodness and charity of this wounded Heart. Your Mother Church, holy mysteries, sacraments, courage of the apostles, wisdom of doctors of Church, virtue of virgins, all these graces flow from this Divine Heart.

This is the real spring opened for the house of Jacob. If you drink from any other spring or river in this world, you will thirst again, but if you drink the blood and water that gush forth from the heart of Jesus, you will never thirst. This water will become a spring of water welling up to eternal life. So, my soul! Hide yourself in the wounds of your divine Savior, when you are agonized or sorrowful. If your joy and your solace is in the wounds of this divine heart, then certainly you will find a peaceful harbor here.

INVOCATION (JAPAM)

O Sacred wound on the Divine Heart, which is always exposed to console all sinners! I surrender myself to You. Christ, bless me to endure all afflictions, grace to suffer with true patience all the pains and unite them with Yours so that I may partake of Your glory in paradise. O! Sweet Jesus, wash away my sins in Your holy blood and with Your divine blessings strengthen and fortify me. O! Ocean of grace! Bless me to find solace in Your divine wound and at the time of my death, grant me the grace to leave my soul in your divine care.

Grant to Your Church, O Lord, assurance of freedom, protect our Supreme Pontiff and make haste that all may know the haven of truth, and have unity of faith, so that there may soon be one fold and one Shepherd! Lord, be merciful to the unfortunate sinners, console the souls in Purgatory and be merciful to me, your unworthy servant. O Immaculate Heart of Mary, O Mother of all blessings, I firmly believe that through your powerful intercession, all my prayers and petitions will be granted. Amen
