Devotion to The Sacred Heart, Its Theology, History and Philosophy part 26.

By  Rev. Joseph J. C. Petrovits, J.C.B., S.T.L.

The Heart of Christ in its glorified state symbolizes the love which He entertains for the redeemed, and the love under whose influence He became our Mediator and Intercessor. Since the Heart in this supernaturalized state reaps the benefit of all the work undertaken for both God and man, it may be considered as the personification of this double love, and this love may be worshipped as symbolized by the transcendentalized Heart.
