June Belongs to a Humble Heart

When the Villains are Beautiful

 

“Behold the Heart which has so loved men that it has spared nothing, even to exhausting and consuming Itself, in order to testify Its love.”

-Christ to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque 

The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus —Christ, who was meek and humble of heart.

But so many, Catholics included, think of June as a month of Pride, a month celebrating the blatant perversions in our society.  It’s heartbreaking how “Pride” has encouraged so much confusion among Christian adults and children.  

Catholic author Noelle Mering articulately points out the problem:

“The understandable desire to be compassionate and the fear of being labeled a bigot have long been weaponized in order to enshrine in our imaginations and our ruling institutions a revolutionary creed that our wills are unimpeachable and our desires omniscient. It is a creed that reduces and redefines the human person and calls them by their sin.”

Love and compassion have been weaponized to confuse so many into believing that in order to show charity, they must deny human dignity and call each other by their struggles and their sin.  

Christ, meanwhile, calls us by name and never by our sin.  The unloving deed is to reduce and define our neighbor to and by his sin.  It ignores his humanity and scoffs at his God-given dignity.  

Love comes from God, Who is Love.  Love is tethered to Truth with a capital “T” —the Truth of Christ.  If it lacks Truth, it’s not Love. Reducing an individual to his sin/struggle is not Truthful because it exploits him and ignores his God-given goodness. Embracing the culture of “Pride” is not embracing love, but choosing to disregard it.  

Love is not proud.  It is meek and humble. 

It’s crucial that we are vigilant and don’t fall for the manipulative jargon of faux compassion that oozes out of every nook and cranny. We may be ridiculed for not going with the tide, but let Chesterton give you strength, “A dead thing can go with the stream, but only a living thing can go against it.”  It takes life, love, and courage to swim against the tide; it takes the conviction that you have something worth defending, loving, and upholding. 

June is the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Heart that loved men and spared nothing.  But in return, how is It treated?  

We need to stand against the perversions that are championed in our godless society; sin isn’t a private affair; all sin wounds the entire mystical Body of Christ. 

Children are being exposed to all kinds of horrors, like Christina Aguilera strapping on a dildo and stimulating masturbation at the “kid-friendly” LA Pride event. 

Was anyone really shocked when Fox News celebrated a “Pride” story about a young girl who “transitioned” to a “boy.”

Unthinkable exhibitions entitled “Drag Your Kids to Pride” entered the scene this month; did you catch the pun? Drag? Because apparently it’s okay for young children to attend Drag-stripper events where the adults encourage the children to hand out bills to the performers. 

ATTN: I am not linking any of these scenarios because they are lewd. If you have not seen them, don’t waste your time.

However, I am addressing these events because what is going on in the “Pride” world of gender madness is wounding millions and millions of souls. And we need to be aware and resist.  

Even if children are not attending these events, as long as they’re plugged into social media the chance that their innocence is intact is slim. 

We need to stand up with virtue and the Love of Christ. 

We can’t hide behind the false flag of compassion because allowing this kind of abusive predatory behavior isn’t loving, it’s cruel. And when we comfort ourselves in pretend kindness, we act as an accomplice to the mess. 

We must show love by affirming our neighbor’s dignity and treating him with that dignity, but we must not, in any way whatsoever, affirm the chaos and wickedness of this perverse gender revolution.  True love ardently desires the sanctity of another, not their destruction. 

What can you do?

1. Be Careful About What You Consume (books, music, social media content, movies) We are called to live in the world but not be of the world. 

2. Be Discerning with the Company You Keep

3. Dedicate yourself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

4. Enthrone Your Home to the Sacred Heart 

5. Fulfill the Nine First Friday Devotion of Reparation 

 

How to Make the First Friday Devotion:

First Friday Requirements: To meet the requirements for the First Friday Devotion a person must, on each First Friday for nine consecutive months:

 

  1. Attend Holy Mass
  2. Receive Communion
  3. Go to Confession 

 

“The communicant should have the intention of making reparation to the Sacred Heart of Jesus for all the sinfulness and ingratitude of men.

 

Our Lord made these promises to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque regarding those who practice the Nine First Fridays and have a deep devotion to His Sacred Heart:

 

  1. I will give them all of the graces necessary for their state of life. 
  2. I will establish peace in their homes. 
  3. I will comfort them in all their afflictions. 
  4. I will be their strength during life and above all during death. 
  5. I will bestow a large blessing upon all their undertakings. 
  6. Sinners shall find in My Heart the source and the infinite ocean of mercy. 
  7. Tepid souls shall grow fervent. 
  8. Fervent souls shall quickly mount to high perfection. 
  9. I will bless every place where a picture of my heart shall be set up and honored. 
  10. I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts. 
  11. Those who shall promote this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, never to be blotted out. 
  12. I promise you in the excessive mercy of My Heart that My all-powerful love will grant all to those who communicate on the First Friday in nine consecutive months the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their sacraments; My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.”

O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.
