Reawakening Devotion to the Sacred Heart

Interview With Author Father Thomas D. Williams

 (Zenit.org).- Christians need to get back to basics, and one of the best ways to do that is through devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, says Legionary of Christ Father Thomas D. Williams.

Father Williams is author of "A Heart Like His: Meditations on the Sacred Heart of Jesus", a book of 32 meditations on the virtues of the Heart of Christ.

"This is an amazingly contemporary, Scripturally based devotion," Williams says, "far from the musty idea it may still conjure up for some." Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, he asserts, "means devotion to Jesus himself, to the Word made flesh, to the humanity of the Son of God, and, in a particular way, to the love of God in human form."

In this interview, ZENIT asked Father Williams, a theology professor in Rome and Vatican analyst for CBS News, to explain the nature of this devotion and why it is so important for Christians today. READ MORE
