Thought for the Day – 5 June – “Month of the Sacred Heart” – Meditations with Antonio Cardinal Bacci (1881-1971)

The Sacred Heart and the Holy Viaticum

We should particularly ask the Sacred Heart for the grace to die a good death, strengthened by the Holy Viaticum.
Let us picture ourselves in this final hour.
The world is fading away and nothing remains of the honours, successes and pleasures of our passing life.
There will remain only two things – on one side, the merits which we have obtained by our prayers, penances and good works; on the other side, the sum total of our sins and ingratitude to God.
May Jesus come, at this moment, into our poor hearts, which is trembling for our sins and lacking in virtue.
May the Holy Viaticum come to strengthen us.
May the white Host bear with it, forgiveness, hope and the purifying flame of love.

Then, the infinite love of the Heart of Jesus will be mingled with th weak limited love of our hearts.
It will waft us into a state of everlasting happiness, where, to love, is to possess, the boundless joy of God.

Antonio Cardinal Bacci

Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you 🙏
