Short Prayer To The Sacred Heart Of Jesus

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who has breathed on the whole world through the mouth of the Holy Ghost, and has given to all nations life and grace, give me a deeper love for you. So that my whole life may be one perfume of grateful love, I humbly implore you to teach me and give me a lively faith in your salvation, a perfect sorrow for my sins, an ardent charity towards my brothers and sisters in Christ, and an undying hope of one day seeing you face to face in Heaven.

O Most Mighty Heart of Jesus! Fountain of life, and throne of mercy! My only consolation, my riches, my hope, and my salvation! O Heart of love, I embrace Thee, I press Thee to my lips; I thank Thee for the gifts Thou hast obtained for me from heaven. I present to Thee this day all the acts of my life. Make them acceptable unto God! Have pity on me a sinner; make use of my kindnesses and prayers, in order to touch the hearts of those whom Thou lovest. Grant me patience when tempted too much by others?s faults and infidelities. Inspire me with knowledge in order that I may grow in Thy grace and become Thy child; let me imitate Thine example in order to become holy like Thee; liberate me through Thy love in order that I may be most devoted to Thee; take possession of my will in order that I may have true generosity. It is for this that I have borne the trials Thou hast sent me since my childhood. From time to time have they made me suffer combatting against myself. But Thou hast mercifully granted that seeing they did not force me to stumble into grave errors; they have made it

Lord Jesus, I offer Thee the most precious blood which gushed forth from Thy Heart during the agony of Thy most cruel passion. O Blood, poured out for me with love and kindness beyond all praise, today I consecrate myself to Thee and unite myself thus to Thy adorable Heart. Were it not for that ineffable love of Thine flaming from the Heart of such agony, my heart would be hopeless indeed! I would never forget that Thou didst die for me; this remembrance would make me turn away in disgust though no justice should condemn me to hell fire.

O Jesus, holy and gracious, as Thou didst manifest Thy pity towards all in distress when Thou wast on earth, so I beseech Thee to behold me in Thy divine goodness, and to succor me in the needful time of my tribulation.

Short Prayer To The Sacred Heart Of Jesus

The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus! Every year we celebrate the solemnity on the eighth day of the Feast of Corpus Christi, 19 days days after Pentecost. This year it falls on June 24th! 

The Devotion to the wounded heart of Jesus dates back to the 11th century. Christians would meditate on Christ’s passion and suffering and offer prayers to the Sacred Heart. However it wasn’t until 1673, when Jesus began to visit Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, that we would learn more about this amazing devotion. During these visions, Jesus shared with St. Margaret Mary about His immense love for mankind and asked her to spread this message. The image if of Christ’s heart surrounded in a crown of thorns to illustrate the immense suffering He endured for us and continues to endure due to man’s ingratitude. The flames symbolize his immense love for us, and the cross is to remind us of his death. He asked that His heart be venerated and adored as a visible display of Christ’s love and mercy. 

Jesus is showing us that His heart is on fire with love for us. He wants everyone to know how much He loves each and every one of us, and the image is the perfect reminder of this enormous love.

O my divine Saviour, inflame my heart with your love, so that it will burn with zeal for your glory and with love towards your dear Mother and all mankind.

I ask this through Our Lady, Mother of Mercy, who was given by you as an advocate in every time of need. May she obtain for me from your Sacred Heart all this and much more. Amen!
