Heart of Jesus, Loaded Down With Reproaches
In this lesson, Annabelle Moseley, poet; author; and Professor of Theology, leads Day 23 of the 33-Day “Our House of the Sacred Heart” Consecration and teaches “The Lesson of the Dove” as a real-life example of waiting. Beautiful prayers, devotions, art, stories, scripture and poetry are included in this podcast that won’t take much of your time… but is time well-spent.
Reflection on Art
Reflect on your response as you study this painting. What story do the hands tell? What do you think of the placement of the dove? Where do you see the embodiment of humility?
Questions of the Day
- Was there ever a time you felt so close to the presence of God that you didn’t want to leave?
- Did you ever feel so close to God that you were afraid to stay?
Think of ways you need the healing of the Divine Physician. Ask the Holy Spirit to guide you in the decisions you make today. See if there is anyone you can help today, bringing The Spirit to them… through the work of your hands and also through prayer!
