Novena to the Sacred Heart

Dear Sisters in Christ: I'd like to extend an invitation to you, to join me in praying this Novena to the Sacred Heart, which begins today and ends 5/30. I have several opportunities in front of me right now ... and not a lot of resources with which to do it, at least not in hand. Please pray with me, that the way will be illuminated for me. Thanks for your prayers!

O Lord Jesus Christ, to your most Sacred Heart I confide this intention. Only look upon me, then do what your love inspires. Let Your Sacred Heart decide. I count on You. I trust in You. I throw myself on Your mercy. Lord Jesus, you will not fail me.

We put all our works at Bezalel at your feet and ask for Your blessings.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in Your love for me.

Sacred Heart of Jesu, Your kingdom come.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I have asked you for many favors, but I earnestly implore this one. Take it, place it in Your open heart. When the Eternal Father looks upon it, He will see it covered with Your Precious Blood. It will no longer be my prayer, but Yours, Jesus. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in You. Let me not be disappointed.

I'll join you in these 9 days... as I'm about due for a novena myself. Let us pray for one another!

It's great to visit yet another blog that is promoting this novena. Pope Benedict has designated the Feast of the Sacred Heart as a world day of prayer for the sanctification of priests. So it is fitting that as many of the faithful as possible take part in these days of prayer which precede the feast day itself.

Linked to your novena to join in Heidi.It is my favorite all time novena and devotion.

My brother Bill died in Nam in the middle of a Jungle and against all odds he still received last rites just as Jesus promised. I still have his bloody Sacred Heart Badge that was returned to us when he died.
