This year on 23 May, Pope Benedict wrote to Fr Hans Peter Kolvenbach, the superior general of the Jesuits for the 50th anniversary of Haurietis Aquas. The Jesuits were notable advocates of the devotion to the Sacred Heart and fiercely opposed by the Jansenists who considered the devotion too liberal.
Back in the 17th century, St Margaret Mary heard our Lord say
Behold the Heart that has so loved men . . . instead of gratitude I receive from the greater part (of mankind) only ingratitude...This seems as true today as it was then except that blasphemy (Jerry Springer the Opera etc.) is added to ingratitude.
