Burning Hearts presents my ongoing personal journey into Sacred Scripture. It is inspired by the 1877 painting The Road to Emmaus by Robert Zünd and the passage in the Gospel of Luke ((24:13-35), in which the disciples who have met the risen Jesus testify:
“Was not our heart burning within us, whilst he spoke in this way, and opened to us the scriptures?” (Luke 24:30-32).
For this reason, most of the posts I write will be in the form of informal Bible study, selecting key verses relating the Old and New Testaments, and exploring their new significance for me.
I will also be presenting essays and book reviews on the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, companion devotions that manifest the love of Jesus for us as a “burning furnace of charity” and the perfect reflection of that love in his mother.
