Please join us as we pray from June 3- June 11 in preparation for the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on June 12.
We adore, praise and love you, Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Our hearts grieve for the many ways that we have failed to love you.
Our hearts grieve as your heart suffers in the poor, who lack the necessities of life while we live with abundance.
Our hearts grieve as your heart, living in the vulnerable, is broken by violence, hatred and oppression.
Our hearts grieve as your heart, beating throughout the cosmos, is wounded by disregard for earth’s environment and all of creation.
Take our hearts; fill them with your love, courage and compassion, that we may offer your heart to our world and to all in need.
Enclose in your Sacred Heart (insert your prayer intention here)
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. (3x)
