The Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Heart of Jesus is the ultimate symbol of God’s mercy;
but it is not an imaginary symbol.
sacred heartIt is a real symbol, which represents the center, the source from which salvation for all humanity gushes forth.  (Pope Francis)


Everyone’s existence is tied to that of others:

Life is not time merely passing by, life is about interactions.  (Pope Francis)


treeI think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in Summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
(Joyce Kilmer)
