The Sacred Heart

June is the month of the Sacred Heart. Here is some carefully curated art, poetry and music on the subject, including my favorite painting of the Sacred Heart: a true master work by Jose Maria Ibarran y Ponce. The brief poem by the great priest-poet, Gerard Manley Hopkins speaks beautifully of the relationship between the Master’s heart and the Servant’s heart in only six lines. Finally, the compelling song by Chris Tomlin, “Your Heart” addresses the life of David, a man “after God’s heart.” May our life’s work be making our own hearts more like God’s.
