"What a weakness it is to love Jesus Christ only when He Caresses us, and to be cold immediately once He afflicts us. This is not true love. Thouse who love thus, love themselves too much to love God with all their heart." - Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque
Catholic Professionals of Greater Philadelphia™ is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus represents acts of veneration of His physical heart, united to his divinity, as the symbol of his redemptive love.
In a popular sense, the heart is the seat of a person’s inner life, both natural and supernatural. Jesus’ heart reminds us of His teaching of living water flowing from His pierced side and the Patristic teaching that the Holy Spirit flowed upon the Church from the wound.
Margaret Mary Alacoque, a 17th century Saint, promoted the devotion of the Sacred Heart especially in acts of reparation and consecration. Learn more clicking here.
