Ateneo Campus Ministry Office: Fr. Catalino Arevalo, S.J. to talk about the Devotion to the Sacred Heart
The Loyola Schools’ Office of Campus Ministry is inviting everyone to a short
talk entitled Spirituality of the Sacred Heart: Living your Legacy. This will
be held today, September 3, 2010 4:30-5:30pm at the Gonzaga College Chapel. Our speaker for this event is Fr. Catalino Arevalo, SJ, a renowned Jesuit theologian and recognized expert on the Devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus is a Catholic devotion especially dear to the Society of Jesus. It was through St. Claude la Colombiere, a Jesuit priest, who
spiritually guided St. Margaret Mary Alacoque during the times she received
revelations from our Lord Jesus, that the devotion was spread. The Church,
recognizing the centrality of the heart of Jesus to our life and faith, later
officially tasked the Society of Jesus to propagate the devotion to the Sacred
Heart. As members of the Ateneo de Manila University community, the
Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is always part of our Jesuit and Atenean identity.
We hope that this talk will not only help us find solace and consolation in the
Heart of Jesus, but also develop a deeper sense of identity and mission shared
with the Jesuits: that we are all sinners loved by the Lord and saved by the
Heart of Jesus, and called to share this same Love to everyone.
