Dedicated emissaries...

"I propose to have no other purpose in all my activities,
either interior or exterior, than the motive of Love alone...
St Teresa Margaret Redi of the Sacred Heart

"When devotion to the Sacred Heart is recommended, what is being recommended to us is the gift of our entire self to Jesus - soul and body, thoughts, feelings, words, actions, joys and sorrows.

Jesus came to light a fire on earth.  Fire purifies, gives light, communicates, unites.  Such is the blaze of Divine Love devotion to the Sacred Heart enkindles in our hearts.

The Heart of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament feeds the flame of our love for the Lord, burning from us the dross of self.   Thus afire we thirst for souls as He does, becoming His dedicated emissaries among the men and women of our day, so many of whom neither know Him nor love Him."
