The Pope is preparing a document on the Sacred Heart of Jesus based on previous magisterial texts.

During the first Wednesday audience of June, the Pope asked for prayers as he prepares the document on this devotion.

It is set to release on September this year.

“I believe it will do us great good to meditate on various aspects of the Lord’s love, which can illuminate the path of ecclesial renewal; but also says something meaningful to a world that seems to have lost its heart,” the Pope remarked.

Last December 27th marked the 350th anniversary of the first manifestation of the Sacred Heart of Jesus to St Margaret Mary Alacoque. That occasion will run until June 27th next year, the date of the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart.
