    Mentioned in this is Pope Pius XII's encyclical. I found it online to read

    ...and then I came across this booklet for only $5 via Amazon: "This book includes 3 encyclicals on the Sacred Heart by Pope Leo XII, Pope Pius XI, and Pope Pius XII."

    Thank you for directing me to it, Lord. :love:

    Also for any Amazon Kindle users, there is a web browser plugin called "Send to Kindle" that I use for Vatican encyclicals, and it'll be delivered like any other book. I know e-readers aren't for everyone, but I use the Kindle Oasis and highly recommend it.

    The bee flitting from flower to flower, examines them, now closely,
    now at a distance; and when it discovers a flower containing a
    substance, it advances, sucks it out and bears it away; and
    thus, with wondrous skill, it makes its honey. In like manner does
    the pious and devout soul, by constant meditation, alight upon
    the Saviour's Wounds, and taste of the sweetness hidden in each
    of them. Gradually the soul becomes filled with heavenly consolations.

    (Dom Anthony Volmar, born about 1550)

    Resting Place in the Wild
    The Heart of Jesus is a place of peace for the poor wanderer
    through this life.

    O Lord Jesus, living and quickening source of eternal life,
    infinite treasure of the Divinity, immortal flower of humanity,
    Thou art my supreme and only salvation. I beseech Thy
    most loving Heart to pour into and to preserve in my soul
    that divine charity which burned so ardently within
    Thy Sacred Breast.

    Still Sweeter Every Day

    1 To Jesus ev'ry day I find my heart is closer drawn,
    He's fairer than the glory of the gold and purple dawn;
    He's all my fancy pictures in its fairest dreams, and more,
    Each day He grows still sweeter than He was the day before.

    The half cannot be fancied, this side the golden shore;
    O there He'll be still sweeter than He ever was before.

    2 His glory broke upon me when I saw Him from afar,
    He's fairer than the lily, brighter than the morning star;
    He fills and satisfies my longing spirit o'er and o'er,
    Each day He grows still sweeter than He was the day before. [Refrain]

    3 My heart is sometimes heavy but he comes with sweet relief,
    He folds me to His bosom when I droop with blighting grief;
    I love the Christ who all my burdens in His body bore,
    Each day He grows still sweeter than He was the day before. [Refrain]

    (Rev. William Clark Martin USA 1864-1914. Born at Hightstown, NJ)

    My mother was crazy about the Sacred Heart. We had one in our House which I loved so much having prayed so much in front of it growing up. An old old,friend.

    When my father and we all went up to claim things from the family home my own heart was set on the old picture, for if that was the only thing I got , I would have counted myself very rich indeed. But one of my brothers had already claimed it and I did not argue.

    I got the family Crucifix and Family Bible Instead.:)

    People say objects do not count, but they do , of course they do for we are people, not angels. A picture, a statue an old set of rosary beads may seem like so much rubbish others but in our hearts may be golden.

    I found my own Sacred Heart up an alley way. I saw it sitting there as I passed by in its ancient golden frame. It has become more golden still down the years from many times of prayer.

    ...many ,many loving glances, me to Him and He to me.
