Feastday: June 23rd
St. Margaret Mary Alacoque was given this devotion by Jesus to His Sacred Heart. It was also prayed everyday by St. Padre Pio.
Jesus’ Sacred Heart burns with love for us and meditating on it deepens our gratitude to Him for giving His life for us on the Cross, as well as inspires us to avoid sin and grow in holiness that we might be less unworthy of the gift of Heaven He offers.
Intro Prayer (to be said each day)
O my Jesus, you have said: Truly I say to you, ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you. Behold I knock, I seek and ask for the grace of: (here name your request) (Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be) Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.
Concluding Prayer for each day
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us miserable sinners and grant us the grace which we ask of you, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, your tender Mother and ours.
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, Our life, our sweetness, and our hope, to thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve, to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, o loving, o sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, o holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ, Amen.
St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.
