Today is the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We remember that we are infinitely loved by Jesus who died on the Cross to redeem us. This is a short prayer I learned in my childhood:
O, Sacred Heart of Jesus, we implore the grace to love thee more and more.
I drew this image freehand for the Sacred Heart of Jesus art competition. My strongest competitor was Gary Effort, who was a the most talented artist in my class. Anyway, Gary deservedly won first place, while I took 2nd. Gary’s Sacred Heart rendition was totally original, while mine was very traditional. I wish you could see it! This picture, by the way, was rendered in color, but my little Kodak Brownie Starflash camera wasn’t loaded with color film at the time.
