Let us pray together the Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, 9 days before we celebrate this powerful Solemnity. St. Padre Pio loved this prayer and he prayed it every day.
Each year we pray a Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus for the 9 days preceding the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart.
This year, the Feast is held on June 19th, so we will begin the Novena on June 10th. Day four will be a bit different, and we will focus on the Heart of Jesus truly present in the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar, as it is the great Feast of Corpus Christi, the Body and Blood of Our Lord.
Let us be confident that the Power of the Heart of Jesus can transform our hearts of stone, wounded by original sin and by our personal sins, into hearts of purity, meekness and mercy!
Let us be faithful in keeping our daily novena date with Him!
"If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, ‘From his innermost being will flow continually rivers of living water.” - John: 7:37-38
Prayer from the novena
PRAYER OF CONSECRATION TO THE SACRED HEART
I (N.), give and consecrate to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ, my person, my life, my actions, my pains and sufferings, so that I may be unwilling to make use of any part of my being save to honor, love, and glorify the Sacred Heart. It is my unchanging intention to be all His and to do all for love of Him. I renounce at the same time with all my heart whatever can displease Him. I, therefore, take You, O Sacred Heart, for the only object of my love, the protector of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my weakness and inconstancy, the atonement for the faults of my life, and the secure refuge at the hour of my death. Be then, O Heart of goodness, my justification before God the Father, and turn away from me the punishment of His just anger. O Heart of love, I put my confidence in You, because I fear everything from my own sinfulness and weakness. I hope for all things from Your mercy and generosity. Destroy in me all that can displease or resist Your holy Will. Let Your pure love impress You so deeply upon my heart that I may never forget You or be separated from You. May my name, by your loving kindness, be written In You, because in You I desire to place all my happiness and all my glory in living and dying in very bondage to you. - Saint Margaret-Mary Alacoque, 1647-1690
