Devotion to the Heart of the Redeemer also rests upon His role a Mediator. Christ Himself revealed His Father’s will in these words: “I am the way, the truth and the life: no one comes to the Father but through me.” (John 14:6) Devotion to the Sacred Heart approaches God through this biblical truth, but seen from the point of view of the Heart of that Mediator.
