Sorrowful Heart of Jesus, Sunday of the Fifth Week of Lent

"The Heart of Jesus
is closer to you when you suffer
than when you are full of joy."

Saint Margaret Mary

I think that the French words on this card mean the following:

A prayer presented by his Holiness (Blessed) Pius IX ---
My adorable Jesus, to show my gratitude to you and to make reparation for my unfaithfulness, I give you my heart, I consecrate myself entirely to you, and I resolve, with your grace, to offend you no more.

PS: Micki, I saw what you wrote yesterday about the fact that the two systems of numbering for the Psalms is confusing. (I agree!) If you'd like me to explain the numbering, please send me an e-mail message.

Micki, yet another card that has just become one of my favourites! (That makes all of them so far, I believe).

But The Sacred can we claim to suffer anything too great when we remeber the suffering that brought about this? Thank You.
Best Regards, Lynneda

Wonderful card and message - sent it to a friend who is helping another friend cope with marital separation.

John - I so enjoy being able to print out your translations and place them behind the card in an archival safe plastic sleeve. Thank you.

Lynneda - You are too funny and yet so helpful in reflections.

Angela - Isn't it great to be able to help others. You do a beautiful service. I'm glad to help.

Jean - "powerful"...such a descriptive word. Thank you.
