the Sacred Heart
" The devotion to
is the fire of Holiness"
Fr. Pablo Menor, SJ
Founder of Pro Ecclesia Sancta
God’s love for you...
is an enduring love that has existed since before creation and will last throughout all eternity. Despite our failings, God has never stopped loving His people. He is merciful and forgiving and continues to love us without measure as we strive to love Him above all things.
In His Most Sacred Heart we find this love pierced for our offenses and ingratitudes. Jesus said to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, “Behold the Heart which has so loved men that it has spared nothing even exhausting and consuming itself in testimony of its love.”
We practice this devotion with no other aim than to imitate Christ’s virtues and make His sentiments, desires, and supernatural charity our own. Jesus Himself presented to us His Heart as an example and said, “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart” (Matthew 11:29).
Pray with us
This devotion calls us to respond
to God’s infinite love.
Let’s love Him in return by uniting our hearts with His!
The art of loving
In Pro Ecclesia Sancta, the disciple's response to the love of the Sacred Heart is synthesized in three related elements, each with a corresponding concrete practice. They are the fruits of our meditation on the Gospel teaching and the messages of Our Lord to St. Margaret Mary.
