366 Project - Day 155 - "Solemnity of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus"


June 03, 2016 - "Solemnity of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus"

Today the Catholic Church celebrates the "Solemnity of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus".

I have a special devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus - as well as to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which the Church celebrates tomorrow. So it just made sense that today's photo be something related to The Sacred Heart.

This is a very old statue of The Sacred Heart of Jesus which found me at the Elephant's Trunk Flea Market in New Milford a couple of weeks ago. It stands about two-feet tall... and has a bit of damage and some old touch-up attempts done to it, but I find it to be perfect just as it is - so I'm not going to restore it or anything.

And so - with all of that out of the way - I'll simply say:

"O SACRUM COR IESU, MISERERE NOBIS"

("O Sacred Heart of Jesus, Have Mercy on Us")
