“The special purpose of the devotion to the Sacred Heart is not to imitate the Savior in His external sufferings, at least not in a direct way. The friends of the Sacred Heart do not have to impose mortifications and terrible penances upon themselves. Rather, they ought to strive to come close to the Sacred Heart and, as a consequence, they will be filled with loving gratitude and compassion. Dispositions such as these will prompt them to accept physical suffering generously, if Divine Providence sends it to them.”
Fr. Leo John Dehon
