A Sensitive and Responsive Love

I was reading a reflection on the second day of Sacred Heart of Jesus novena, on the theme about love as being sensitive and responsive. This poem by Emily Dickenson, an American poet, aptly expresses the desire to have a loving and sensitive heart just like the Heart of Jesus.

If I can stop one heart from breaking,

I shall not live in vain;

If I can ease one life the aching, or cool one pain,

Or help one fainting robin,

Unto his nest again,

I shall not live in vain.
