The Pierced Heart of Jesus

XMN175261

John 19:34, “but one soldier thrust his lance into his side, and immediately blood and water flowed out. ”

Saint Catherine of Sienna was a mystic. She could talk to Jesus. She once asked,

“Sweet, Spotless, Lamb, You were dead when Your side was opened. Why, then, did You allow that Your Heart should thus be wounded and opened by force?”

Jesus answered,

“For several reasons, of which I will tell you the principal. My desires regarding the human race were infinite and the actual time of suffering and torture was at an end. Since my love is infinite, I could not therefore by this suffering manifest to you how much I loved you. That is why I willed to reveal to you the secret of my Heart by letting you see It open, that you might well understand that It loved you far more than I could prove to you by a suffering that was over.”
