Empty, Hungry, Thirsty – Feast of the Sacred Heart


heartglassConsider the following passages as we prepare to celebrate the Feast of the Sacred Heart:

Burning with true justice for those lost, hungry crowds, Jesus would give nothing less than everything – even if it cost him his life. | Frank Andersen, Eucharist: Participating in the Mystery, p.57

A little later on the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus I was at the convent of the Sacred Heart waiting for Mass. I was reflecting on the happiness of those who belong entirely to God and whose only occupation is loving and communing with him. I regretted that I was not called to Carmel. Suddenly I distinctly heard a voice coming to me from the Crucifix on the altar: “I thirst.” I was deeply moved by these words. I knelt in adoration and offered myself to God with my whole heart for all that he asked of me. | Marie Madeleine d’Höuet, Memoirs

Empty, Hungry, Thirsty

How do we work to feed, fill and nourish one another in our lives, at home, at work and in our communities? Note the ways in which we do this.

How do we let Jesus fill us? Do we let Jesus fill us? Or do we feed our hunger with other food?

Bringing all these thoughts to God, gratefully end with thanks.
