Hearts of Jesus and Mary so dear to our Founders

Hearts of Jesus and Mary so dear to our Founders

Come, all ye people,
hasten to the Most Gracious Heart,
trust, all love him:
It is a pure flame of love.

O loving King of hearts
through your heart, let everything
and the innermost part of mankind be attracted
to you, Creator of all.

Verses from the Hymns composed by St John Eudes for the liturgy of First Vespers and Morning Lauds of the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus..

Blessed are you, O Mary, because you bore the Creator of the world, but most blessed because you bore him in your heart before you bore him in your body.
Happy is thy heart, O Mary, which is the purest mirror of the life of Christ and of his passion.

Antiphons from the Office of the Hours composed by St John Eudes for the Solemnity of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary
