In the pierced heart of the Crucified, God's own heart is opened up--here we see who God is and what he is like. Heaven is no longer locked up. God has stepped out of hiddenness.

Month of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ
Thou hast redeemed us, O Lord, in Thy Blood, out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and hast made us to our God a kingdom. The mercies of the Lord I will sing for ever: I will show forth Thy truth with my mouth to generation to generation. ~Introit from the Mass for the Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ
