BEST. VALENTINE. EVER.

Yesterday, before my eyes, was the BEST “valentine” message of ALL-time…

in (of all places) a free newspaper for “treasure hunters” seeking  a good bargain!!  

And there it was, unexpectedly, amongst all the classified ads:

A Valentine 2016

No greater LOVE!!

Good News, even now, in the middle of “National Heart Month” and with Valentine’s Day upon us, beckoning us to draw evermore near to our One & Only! …To express our love and gratitude to God, Himself, for the best Heart of all!!

Let us then pray… [excerpts from the Litany of the Sacred Heart]:

Image of the Sacred Heart:  A replica of a painting by an unknown artist from the 1700’s. Per EWTN Religious Catalogue:  “The Latin inscription at the bottom reads, ‘Sic Deus Dilexit Mundum,’ and is translated, ‘FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD‘ (John 3:16). Jesus’ wounded heart is illuminated by what looks like a large Host behind it and it is ablaze with the love He has for mankind. The tears on Jesus’ cheeks remind us of St. Margaret Mary’s great apparition in which Jesus said, ‘BEHOLD THE HEART that so loved men…instead of gratitude I receive from the greater part only ingratitude…'” 

DEAR HEART OF JESUS…

A BE-MINE

JESUS LOVES US!
