Heart of Jesus, of Infinite Majesty
In this lesson, Annabelle Moseley, poet; author; and Professor of Theology, leads Day 4 of the 33-Day “Our House of the Sacred Heart” Consecration and teaches “The Lesson of the Gifts” as a real-life example of taking on a Goliath. 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.
Think of something you can offer as a lavish gift to Our Lord such as: 1)in prayer, formally consecrate your children to Him (2)prayerfully offer Him your job/vocation/ministry as dedicated to Him and ask Him to lead you in it wherever He chooses (3)give to a charity out of love for Him (4)lavish praise or help to others today and in so doing, offer it to Him (5)offer prayers of praise and thanks

Reflection on Art
James Tissot captures the idea of Lesson 4 perfectly in “The Ointment of the Magdalene.” Look at the reaction on everyone’s faces, and the hand of Jesus, outstretched in blessing. Look at the woman’s posture. Why hold anything back? Let’s love our Lord like that.
