Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Litany of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus
Consecration of Families to the Sacred Heart
O most Sacred Heart of Jesus,|
Thou didst reveal to the Blessed Margaret Mary
Thy desire to rule over Christian families; behold,
in order to please Thee, we stand before Thee this day,
to proclaim Thy full sovereignty over our family.
We desire henceforth to live Thy life, we desire that
the virtues, to which Thou hast promised peace on earth,
may flower in the bosom of our family; we desire to keep
far from us the spirit of the world, which Thou hast condemned.
Thou art King of our hearts by our love of Thee alone, with
which our hearts are on fire and whose flame we shall nourish
by frequent reception of the Holy Eucharist.
Be pleased, O Sacred Heart, to preside over our gathering together,
to bless our spiritual and temporal affairs, to ward off all
annoyance from us, to bless our joys and comfort our sorrows.
If any of us has ever been so unhappy as to fall into the misery
of displeasing Thee, grant that he may remember, O Heart of Jesus,
that Thou art full of goodness and mercy toward the repentant sinner.
And when the hour of separation strikes and death enters our
family circle, whether we go or whether we stay, we shall all bow
meekly before Thine eternal decrees. This shall be our consolation,
to remember that the day will come, when our entire family,
once more united in heaven, shall be able to sing of Thy glory
and Thy goodness forever. May the Immaculate Heart of Mary and
the glorious Patriarch Saint Joseph vouchsafe to offer Thee this
our act of consecration, and to keep the memory thereof alive in
us all the days of our lives.
Glory to the Heart of Jesus, our King and our Father! Amen.a) The members of a family, on the first occasion of
its consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, if they recite
the above prayer before a likeness of the Sacred Heart,
are granted: an indulgence of 7 years; a plenary indulgence,
if they fulfil the usual conditions.
b) The members of a family, on the renewal of this
consecration each year, if they make use of the same prayer
before a likeness of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, are granted:
an indulgence of 3 years; a plenary indulgence, if the usual
conditions are fulfilled.
Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
let my heart never rest until it finds You, Who are
its center, its love, and its happiness.By the wound
in Your heart pardon the sins that I have committed
whether out of malice or out of evil desires.
Place my weak heart in Your own Divine Heart,continually
under Your protection and guidance, so that I may
persevere in doing good and in fleeing evil
until my last breath. Amen.
Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque
Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
O Most holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing,
I adore You, I love You, and with a lively sorrow for my sins,
I offer You this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient,
pure and wholly obedient to Your will. Grant, good Jesus,
that I may live in You and for You. Protect me in the midst
of danger; comfort me in my afflictions; give me health of body,
assistance in my temporal needs, Your blessings on all that I do,
and the grace of a holy death. Amen.
Act of Consecration
to the Sacred Heart of Jesus
O Adorable Heart of Jesus, the tenderest,
the most amiable, the most generous of all hearts!
Penetrated with gratitude at the sight of Thy
benefits, I come to consecrate myself wholly
and unreservedly to Thee!
I wish to devote all my energies to propagating
Thy worship and winning, if possible,
all hearts to Thee.
Receive my heart this day, O Jesus!
Or rather take it, change it, purify it.
To render it worthy of Thee;
Make it humble, gentle, patient, faithful and
generous like Thine, by inflaming it with
the fire of Thy love.
Hide it in Thy Divine Heart with all hearts that
love Thee and are consectrated to thee; Never
permit me to take my heart from Thee again.
Let me rather die than grieve Thy adorable Heart.
Thou knowest O Heart of Jesus, that the desire
of my heart is to love Thee always.
To be wholly Thine in life and in death, in time
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in Thee.
