VIDEO: Bp. Hying on St. Margaret Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus

Bp. Hying of Diocese of Madison loves the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

As a matter of fact, at his installation Mass he declined to wear the chasuble with his own new coat-of-arms we had made especially to match what everyone else was wearing in favor of a chasuble with the Sacred Heart on it!   Not that I’m, you know, filing these things or anything.

Seriously, I get it.  I was ordained a Deacon on the Feast of the Sacred Heart, by my choice.  I share the devotion, and Bp. Hying has it in spades… or rather in hearts.

Hying had a brief video today – in fact every day he has brief videos – for the feast of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, the French nun and visionary of the Sacred Heart.  Less than 3 minutes.

The Postcommunion for St. Margaret Mary in the traditional Roman Rite (the choice of readings was superb). Addressed to the Son:

Córporis et Sánguinis tui, Dómine Iesu, sumptis mystériis: concéde nobis, qu?sumus, beáta Margaríta María Vírgine intercedénte; ut, supérbis s?culi vanitátibus exútis, mansuetúdinem et humilitátem Cordis tui indúere mereámur:…

Let us pray.
Having received the sacramental mysteries of Thy Body and Blood, we beseech Thee, O Lord Jesus, grant to us, the virgin blessed Margaret Mary interceding, that, having been stripped of the pride-filled empty-pomps of the world, we may warrant to clothe ourselves with the meekness and humility of Thy Heart.
Who livest and reignest with God the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.
R. Amen

    “…An emphasis on the mercy of Jesus, the love of Jesus, the power of Jesus within us, and his deep desire to be in union with us.” Beautiful reflection.

    The 24 Hours of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ
    From 9 P.M. to 10 P.M.
    Quote is from the first hour of agony in the Garden of Gethsemane.
    “My child, do you want to know what it is that torments Me more than the very executioners? Rather, those are nothing compared to this! It is the Eternal Love, which, wanting primacy in everything, is making Me suffer, all at once and in the most intimate parts, what the executioners will make Me suffer little by little. Ah, my child, it is Love which prevails in everything, over Me and within Me. Love is nail for Me, Love is scourge, Love is crown of thorns – Love is everything for Me. Love is my perennial passion, while that of men is in time. Ah, my child, enter into my Heart, come to be dissolved in my love, and only in my love will you comprehend how much I suffered and how much I loved you, and you will learn to love Me and to suffer only out of love.”
    O my Jesus, since You call me into your Heart to show me what love made You suffer, I enter into It. But as I enter, I see the portents of love, which crowns your head, not with material thorns, but with thorns of fire; which scourges You, not with lashes of ropes, but with lashes of fire; which crucifies You with nails, not made of iron, but of fire. Everything is fire, which penetrates deep into your bones and into your very marrow; and distilling all of your Most Holy Humanity into fire, it gives You mortal pains, certainly greater than the very Passion, and prepares a bath of love for all the souls who will want to be washed of any stain and acquire the right of children of love.
