THE FEAST OF THE MOST SACRED HEART OF JESUS

The service in honor of the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus was composed by our greatest Liturgist, Father Isidore Dolnytsky, “The service composed by the Prelate, Father Dolnytsky,” says Metropolitn Andrew Sheptytsky,”not only complies with all the liturgical prescriptions, but also as regards its content is a very good rendition of the cult of the infinite love of Christ under the symbol of his heart.” Father Dolnytsky also composed the Akathistos to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which is considered the most beautiful hymn of praise in honor of Christ’s love.
The Archeparchial synod of Lviv, in its directives concerning the cult of Christ’s Love of December 20, 1940, ordered the priest to read the act of consecration to the Heart of Jesus after the Divine Liturgy every year on the third Sunday following the Descent of the Holy Spirit, and gives a formula of the consecration. The Synod approved the practice of the Apostleship of Prayer veneration the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It strongly recommended that priests encourage the faithful to practice the Communion of reparation and to introduce everywhere the Apostleship of Prayer. The synod consecrated the entire Archeparchy of Lviv to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and prescribed that the priests consecrate themselves, their families, their parish and all Ukraine to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
The feast pf the Sacred Heart of Jesus was adopted by the Syrian, Maronite, Chaldean, Armenian, Melchite, and Italo-Greek Catholics of the Eastern Church. The revision of our liturgical books conducted by the Holy See in the 1940’s retained the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in our breviary under the name “The Feast of the Most Sweet Lord and God our Savior Jesus Christ, Lover of Mankind.”
In His promises given to St. Margaret Alacoque, Jesus Christ promised the venerators of his Sacred Heart the necessary graces for their state of life; peace in their families; consolation in their pains and trials; assured refuge in life, and especially the grace of a happy death. Millions of souls throughout the world have found peace and happiness, growth in love, and the practice of Christian virtues in the devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
