Fr. Kubicki reflects on the life of this Chilean Jesuit and his devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
In this particular program Mark and Frances discuss Devotion to the Sacred Heart, and the unique role this this devotion plays in Carmelite Spirituality. The Church is being called in a special way today to rededicate and consecrate herself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, but what does this mean to us individually. This conversation will explore the history of the Devotion to the Sacred Heart, and then address how this powerful devotion can contribute to our personal growth in holiness. We will hear about how we, like St John the Beloved, can begin to get our own heart in rhythm with the heart beat of the Lord. This conversations explores the deeper and spiritual meaning of the ‘heart,’ and what it means to strive, as our Blessed Mother did, to become pure of heart.
