Sacred Heart Novena

Sacred Heart Novena

The Sacred Heart Novena runs between June 16th to June 24th.
There are prayers and reflections for each day.

How To Pray This Novena

Set aside about ten minutes each day.

Take your time over the words you read. Linger over a word or a phrase.
Repeat it aloud or in silence. Let it rest in your mind and heart.
Think about its meaning. Share your thoughts and feelings with Jesus.
Wait quietly to see what comes into your mind and heart.
Don’t worry if nothing seems to be happening.
People who know each other well don’t need many words.

Blessed John Sullivan tells us that God is delighted to see us,
even if we don’t know what to say. God has our best interests at heart.

Novena Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ, your heart was moved with love
for those who came for help in their need.
You healed the sick . You fed the hungry.
You forgave sinners. You cried over Jerusalem.
Above all, you showed to those who were prepared to listen
the way to true life, for you are the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Lord, your heart is still moved today by your people and their many needs.
Open my heart to hear your word, to accept your love,
and to respond to your call.
In particular, I beg you to grant me the favour I ask during this novena
(make your request silently), provided that it will contribute
to my own eternal good and to the building up of your kingdom of love,
peace and justice here on earth.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
I place all my trust in you.
