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.
