"At first communion I was taught to say first thing every morning, Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in Thee!' Reading Father Kubicki's splendid book has only made that prayer all the more sincere and meaningful." --Most Reverend Timothy M. Dolan
, Archbishop of New York
"A fresh and attractive reconsideration of this centuries-old devotion in the Catholic Church. Blessed Basile Moreau (1873), founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross, who entrusted his priests to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, wrote: 'The primary purpose of the devotion to the Sacred Heart is to return love for love.' Fr. Kubicki develops this theme in a way that speaks well to today's generation of believers." --Rev. Peter D. Rocca, C.S.C.
, Rector, Basilica of the Sacred Heart, University of Notre Dame
"I invite everyone to renew his devotion to the Sacred Heart of Christ in the month of June, making use of the traditional prayer of the offering of the day and keeping in mind the intentions that I have proposed to the whole Church." --Pope Benedict XVI
