Today, the church celebrates the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. This feast is celebrated 19 days after Pentecost and it reminds us that we are called to the fullness of life through the love of Jesus. Jesus' physical heart is the representation of his divine love for humanity. The wounds and crowns represent the cruel death Jesus endured for us, and the shining rays are a symbol of his love for us. The Feast of the Sacred Heart is meant to remind people of Jesus' love and to encourage the faithful to make reparation for the many sins committed against him.
