Feast of The Sacred Heart

Friday, the 7th of June, we celebrated the Feast of the Sacred Heart, the Feast of our institute. This Feast was introduced in the Catholic Church in the 17th century after a nun, Sainte Marguerite Mary Alacoque, had several visions of Jesus showing her his Heart. In one of these visions, Christ asked St. Margaret Mary to request that the Feast of the Sacred Heart be celebrated on the Friday after the octave (or eighth day) of the Feast of Corpus Christi, in reparation for the ingratitude of men for the sacrifice that Christ had made for them. The Sacred Heart of Jesus represents not simply His physical heart but His love for all mankind.
This is a powerful message for all of us who live and work in this Center of “Halev-Hakadosh” in Haifa: to serve our children with love and devotion, with all our heart and our soul, as God is loving all and forever!
