"The Sacred Heart" is a revelation of God's love for humanity. The Heart of Christ burns with love for humankind. It is at the very centre of the Christian mystery. Jesus appeared to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque in Paray-Le-Monial (France) to offer His "Divine Heart is so inflamed with love for men "that it is also wounded by so much "unworthiness". Jesus asked her to help Him attract the hearts of humans to His love. Praying to the Sacred Heart means spreading the civilisation of love across the world!
The Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is celebrated on the 3rd Friday after Pentecost. The month of June is consecrated to the Sacred Heart. On this occasion, we can recite a novena to prepare for the Solemnity and comfort the heart of Jesus, who suffered so many indignities for our sake. Online novenas to the Sacred Heart are available all year long: you can pray them any time you want during the year, any moment you feel like it.
When we pray to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we reach Him at the deepest pit of His love and answer His call. Jesus can refuse nothing to those who offer themselves to Him with full confidence. Let us open our hearts to Him who revealed Himself fully to us: entrust your family and your hardships to Him and ask Him to reign on our lives so that we may shine with His love.
We can decide to follow the Way of the Heart - the Pope's worldwide prayer network - to walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ. Discover the infinite love of God, which invites us to commit to this friendship truly. Become great disciples of Christ, and start the mission of sharing His compassion!
