Our Father, 3 Hail Marys, Glory Be

Reflect

This month the Church’s calendar is filled with incredible feasts including Pentecost, the Most Holy Trinity, Corpus Christi, and the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Each of these solemnities helps us understand Who our God is, revealing His own heart to us. Corpus Christi specifically celebrates the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. This is only possible because our God became incarnate, taking on human flesh and elevating it to the heights of heaven. 

Following Christ’s example, we are called to have an incarnate faith. Our faith is meant to be made manifest in our lives, influencing the world around us for the common good of all. Rather than keeping it to ourselves, the love and truth revealed through our faith in Christ is to be shared with the whole world for the benefit of all people. As Christians, we are given the responsibility of working to create societies that reflect the love and justice of God. Laws are good only in as much as they mirror the Truth as revealed through God’s own heart.

We know that human life is a gift from God. Therefore, we act with charity and compassion when we work to ensure that the most vulnerable are protected in our nation’s laws. Jesus Himself chose to enter the world as a vulnerable infant, showing us the dignity of human life from the moment of conception. May the laws of our nation once again protect all human life and in doing so, better reflect the heart of God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. 

Act

(Choose one.)

  • Pray the Litany of the Sacred Heart of Jesus for this month’s intention that human life will be protected in law and welcomed in love. Ask Jesus to reveal His heart to you and to transform your heart to be more like His.
     

  • Read and reflect on how the Sacred Heart of Jesus calls us to manifest God’s love in the world and the role of religious freedom in living out our faith. 
     

  • Offer some other sacrifice or prayer that you feel called to do for this month’s intention.
