Why do Catholics celebrate the feast of a heart? This devotion was revealed to several saints over the years and is now one of the most widely practiced devotions in the Roman Catholic tradition. The Sacred Heart of Jesus celebrates Christ's physical heart as the representation of His divine love for humanity.

In Jesus' human heart, we find the divine love of God. It is most often depicted as shining with divine light, pierced by the lance-wound, encircled by the crown of thorns, with a cross and flames on top. Often, the heart is bleeding, speaking to Jesus' humanity, while the flames and light reveal His divinity. The wounded heart reminds us how He suffered for us.

Christ's love is transformative and everlasting. His Sacred Heart reminds us of that love. Join Grotto Network in reflecting on that love today with this Spotify playlist featuring artists Ellie Holcomb and The Dust of Men, and themes of fire, light, and steadfast love.
