Rededication and Blessing of the Image of the Sacred Heart
January 8, 2012
Feast of the Epiphany
St. Patrick Church
"Dear brothers and sisters,
We have genuine reason to rejoice because we are about to bless this image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. This image honors, above all, the truth that Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. The eternal Son of God, who came down to the womb of the Virgin Mary, is the sign and sacrament of God the Father. As Christ himself said: "He who sees me sees the Father." Therefore when we honor this image, let us lift up our eyes to Christ, who reigns for ever with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
