The Sacred Heart of Jesus is the symbol of the immense love of Jesus Christ for God and mankind. The devotion to the Sacred Heart is directed at the miniscule power that belongs to the human nature of Christ. In the Bible, the heart is often seen as the symbol of courage, joy and passion. Church Fathers like Augustine and John Chrysostom considered the heart as a symbol of love. Medieval mystics such as Bernard of Clairvaux and Johannes Ruusbroec described their experiences of Jesus’ passionate love for humanity. This love is expressed in the will to suffer and die in the interest of the other. Representatives of the Modern Devotion also contributed to the devotion to the incarnated love of God.
