The Heart of Jesus

Monday, July 14

Cosmic Christ

“In the Heart of Jesus,

the center of Christianity is set before us.

It expresses everything, all that is genuinely new

and revolutionary, in the New Covenant.


This Heart calls to our heart.

It invites us to step forth out of

the futile attempt of self-preservation,

and, by joining in the task of love,

by handing ourselves over to him and with him,

to discover the fullness of love, which alone is eternity,

and which alone sustains the world.”


– Joseph Ratzinger
