Father places the suffering of Christ--God and Man--into perspective. How is it possible for God to suffer?
This sermon on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is as beautiful as it is instructive.
What do Catholics believe? What to you believe about the Sacred Heart of Jesus?
O sacred heart of Jesus, I place my trust in thee, Whatever may befall me, Lord, though dark the hour may be; In all my woes, in all my joys, though nought but grief I see, O sacred heart of Jesus, I place my trust in thee.
When those I loved have passed away, and I am sore distressed, O sacred heart of Jesus, I fly tothee for rest. In all my trials, great or small, my confidence shall be Unshaken as I cry, dear Lord, I place my trust in thee.
This is my one sweet prayer, dear Lord, my faith, my trust, my love, But most of all in that last hour, when death points up above, O sweet savior, may thy face smile on my soul all free. Oh may I cry with rapturous love, I've placed my trust in thee.
The Remnant values the comments and input of our visitors. It’s no secret, however, that trolls exist, and trolls can do a lot of damage to a brand. Therefore, our comments are heavily monitored 24/7 by Remnant moderators around the country. They have been instructed to remove demeaning, hostile, needlessly combative, racist, Christophobic comments, and streams not related to the storyline. Multiple comments from one person under a story are also discouraged. Capitalized sentences or comments will be removed (Internet shouting).
The Remnant comments sections are not designed for frequent personal blogging, on-going debates or theological or other disputes between commenters. Please understand that we pay our writers to defend The Remnant’s editorial positions. We thus acknowledge no moral obligation whatsoever to allow anyone and everyone to try to undermine our editorial policy and create a general nuisance on our website. Therefore, Remnant moderators reserve the right to edit or remove comments, and comments do not necessarily represent the views of The Remnant.

The Remnant is pro-family, pro-life, pro-Catholic across the board, which is why it is hated by the far-Left and has even been targeted by powerful Liberal lobby groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center. We need your help if there's to be a Catholic response to universal Christophobia that really matters.
