Today at Mater Dei
Sacred Heart of Jesus
In the sixteenth century Protestantism, and in the seventeenth Jansenism, attempted to distort one of the essential truths of Christianity, namely, the love of God for all men. The liturgy, which is the living expression of the Faith of the Church, countered these attempts by the institution of the feast of the Sacred Heart which proclaims and exalts the universal and infinite love of our Savior. The feast day falls on the Friday after the traditional octave of Corpus Christi; after having celebrated the mystery of the Holy Eucharist for eight days, the Church now honors the Sacred Heart, the incarnation through our Lord’s Sacred Humanity of the very love of God.
St. Ephrem of Syria, Confessor/Doctor
St. Ephrem, a deacon of Edessa, is the great classic theologian of the Syrian Church. He was a poet as well as a commentator on Sacred Scripture, and composed hymns about the mysteries of Christ, our Lady, and the saints; he was called the ‘harp of the Holy Spirit.” He died in 373 and was proclaimed a Doctor of the Church in 1920 by Benedict XV.
