Jesus says, “Behold this Heart which loves so much and which is so little loved in return,” as most of our Catholic churches are either locked or empty during the week, while the Living God dwells with us each day and night and says. “ I am the Vine, you are the  branches, be that abides in me and I in him will bear much fruit, for without Me you can do nothing.”
