Excerpt from The Mercies of the Sacred Heart: Twelve Sermons for the First Fridays

Catholic devotion is the loving homage paid to a sacred object as seen in the light of faith. It is, in its last analysis, the outgrowth and living expression of Catholic dogma. It has its seat in the heart and its root in the intellect. It grows out of divine truth, and is nurtured by divine love, as the flower is nurtured by the warm sunshine.

Now the truth out of which the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus grows is the central truth of the Christian religion, the Incarnation of the Son of God. "The Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us, and we saw his glory, the glory as it were of the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth" (John i. 14).
