HELLO — The Month of June

Heart

The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. What an excellent time to begin a novena.
What is a novena some might ask? A novena (from Latin: Novem, “nine”) is an ancient tradition of devotional praying for nine successive days or weeks. During a novena, we implore favors for ourselves or others.
Members of the Roman Catholic Church most often pray novenas.
The prayers often derived from devotional prayer books, or consist of the recitation of the rosary (a “rosary novena”), or of short prayers through the day.

If you have been in need of something, try with confidence to offer prayers during the month of June in honor of His Sacred Heart, below is a suggested prayer, but any prayer to God is acceptable, especially one you might have composed yourself.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
filled with infinite love,
broken by my ingratitude,
pierced by my sins,
yet loving me still;
accept the consecration
that I make to You
of all that I am
and all that I have.
Take every faculty
of my soul and body
and draw me,
day by day,
nearer and nearer
to Your Sacred Heart,
and there,
as I can understand the lesson,
Teach me Your blessed ways. Amen.

O my Jesus, You have said, ‘Truly I say to you, ask, and it will
be given you, seek and you will find, knock and it will be
opened to you.’ Behold, I knock, I seek and ask for the grace (mention your petition)
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

O my Jesus, You have said, ‘Truly I say to you if you ask
anything of the Father in my name, He will give it to you.’
Behold, in Your name, I ask the Father for the grace of ( ask your petition). Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

O my Jesus, You have said, ‘Truly I say to you, heaven and
earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.’
Encouraged by Your infallible words, I now ask for the grace (repeat your petition).
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have
compassion on the afflicted, pity us poor sinners
and grant us the grace which we ask of You, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Your tender mother and ours.
