First Friday (Sacred Heart)

Yesterday (June 4) was First Friday. This is the month of the Sacred Heart. Next Friday will be the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart. Our parish is currently having the Novena to the Sacred Heart.

Yesterday was also the Feast of Blessed Mary Elizabeth Hesselblad (1870-1957), Foundress of the Order of the Most Holy Savior of Saint Bridget.  The Charisma of Mother Elizabeth can be summed-up by the following three words: “Contemplation, Adoration and Reparation ". This is also at the heart of the devotion to the Sacred Heart.

Yesterday I also had the happiness to receive the hair relic of Blessed Mary of Jesus, who had great devotion to the Sacred Heart.
