AS we joyfully celebrate the Solemnity of the SAcred Heart, let us never forget our forefathers in Medieval England who were so devoted to the cult of the FIVE WOUNDS. This included devotion to the Heart of Jesus and fulfilled much the same role for them as devotion to the Sacred Heart does for us of the Counter-Reformation. The Catholic rebels against the Tudor tyranny had the Five Wounds on their banners.

The Mass of the Five Wounds was only a few sentences different from that in the EF Missal Humiliavit (de Passione).
