|The symbol of French royalists(used by them during the war in the Vendée) . Of course hearts of us all shall be moulded after the Sacred Heart of Jesus|
Sometimes love, this most beautiful of interpersonal relations, is symbolized in the arts by the heart alone. Undoubtedly, such depiction refers to the romantic situation that may, at least to some extent, unite two people. Still the symbol of a cross mounted on a heart seems to serve better as a sign of the genuine love:
The sole heart often seeks only its own pleasure, whereas the cross enables people to love each other in season and out of season, binding the same heart tightly with its duty.
PS Please pray for the Italian girl, Melissa, who has been killed in recent bomb attack. And do not forget about her killers...
