St Annibale and the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

Today, 11 June, we mark the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Let us listen to the words of St Annibale, whose Feast Day we recently celebrated while in lockdown here in Victoria, Australia:

“…I will unite myself with the intimate pains of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus for so many continuous centuries-old misery and, remembering the holy Words of Jesus: ‘Rogate Ergo Dominum messis, ut mitat operarios in messem suam (Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out labourers into His harvest)’, I will believe that the salvation of the peoples, nations, the society, the Church, especially of children and the youth, for the evangelisation of the poor and for any spiritual and temporal good for the human family, there will never be a more effective and supreme remedy than this command from our Lord Jesus Christ.”

St Annibale Writings, vol 44 p129

We were unfortunately not able to celebrate St Annibale’s Feast Day (01 June) with a Mass and gathering together with our friends because there was a statewide lockdown due to increased numbers of COVID-19 cases. Nevertheless, amongst ourselves as an FDZ community, we marked the day of our Father Founder very prayerfully in our own way. Below are some photos taken inside our FDZ Chapel on the Feast Day:

Please continue to pray for vocations, asking Jesus to:

“Send, O Lord, Holy Apostles into Your Church!”
