Praised be Jesus Christ!! Now and Forever!!

"En ut superba criminum

Et saeva nostroum cohors
Cor sauciavit innocens
Merentis haud tale Dei!

Vibrantis hastam militis
Peccata nostra dirigunt,
Ferrumque dirae cuspidis
Mortale crimen acuit.

Ex Corde scisso Ecclesia,
Christo iugata, nascistur:
Hoc osstium arcae in latere est
Genti as salutem positum.

Ex hoc perennis gratia,
Ceu septiformis fluvius,
Stola ut illic sordidas
Lavemus Agni in sanguine,

Turpe est redire ad crimina,
Quae Cor beatum lacerent:
Sed aemulemur cordibus
Flammas amoris indices."

"Look how the proud cruel multitude of our sins have wounded the sinless Heart of God, undeserving of such treatment.
It was this that put direction and vigor into the soldier's hesitation; it was man's sin that sharpened the spear's point.
The Church, bride of Christ, is born of His pierced Heart; this is the gate in the side of the ark, put there for man's salvation.
Seven streams of never-failing grace flow from this Heart that we may wash our soiled robes in the blood of the Lamb.
How shameful it would be to return to sins which wounded this Sacred Heart; how much better to try to reproduce in the burning love of our hearts the flames that are signs of the love of His Heart!"

I love this hymn and it is hard to find so I placed it here to share it that you too may be blessed and inspired by it. May the Sacred Heart of Jesus always be honored within our hearts and lives! Jesus I Trust in You have Mercy on us and on the whole world!
Omnia Pro Iesu Per Mariam!!
