EFFICACIOUS NOVENA TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS: DAY 9

IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. AMEN.

(The Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus was started and made popular by St. Margaret Mary Alacoque. She was inspired by visions of Jesus to spread this devotion).

Hymn

Heart of Christ we sing your praises,
Wellspring of eternal life.
Through the sorrows of our passion
We find refuge from our strife.

Heart of Christ now embodied,
All the wonder of God’s love
You tell us the tender mercies,
Showered from our God above.

Heart of Christ who brings all healing,
To the lowly and the weak.
Let us know your loving kindness,
Show yourself to all who seek.

OPENING PRAYER

NOVENA TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS - (DAY 9) - YouTube

Heart of Jesus, faithful to all creatures, how many times, after having promised to be entirely Yours, have we denied You. We recognize our ingratitude and sincerely want to be converted. Warm our hearts in the fire of the same love that burns your Heart.

O God, who in the Heart of your Son, wounded by our sins, in the infinite concessions of love treasures, grant that we offer a fair reparation, consecrating ourselves to the Sacred Heart all our lives. Grant this through Christ, our Lord. Amen

SCRIPTURAL READING: John 19:31-37

(Piercing of the Sacred Heart of Jesus)

Sacred Heart of Jesus, pierced with a lance | Heart of jesus, Jesus, Traditional catholicismIt was Preparation Day, and to prevent the bodies remaining on the cross during the sabbath — since the sabbath was a day of special solemnity – the Jews asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken away. Consequently, the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with him and then the other. When they came to Jesus, they found that he was already dead, and so instead of breaking his legs one of the soldiers pierced his side with a lance; and immediately there came out blood and water. This is the evidence of one who saw it – trustworthy evidence, and he knows he speaks the truth — and he gives it so that you may believe as well. Because all this happened to fulfill the words of scripture:
“Not one bone of his will be broken”:
and again, in another place scripture says:
“They will look on the one whom they have pierced.”

The Catholic Voyager: Why did blood & water flow from Christ's side?

The Gospel of the Lord…

 

From a work by Saint Bonaventure, bishop – SOLEMNITY OF SACRED HEART
(With you is the source of life)

Sacred Heart Pictures - Sacred Heart Of Jesus Png , Free Transparent Clipart - ClipartKey

You who have been redeemed, consider who it is who hangs on the cross for you, whose death gives life to the dead, whose passing is mourned by heaven and earth, while even the hard stones are split. Consider how great he is; consider what he is.
In order that the Church might be formed from the side of Christ as he slept on the cross, in order that the word of scripture might be fulfilled – ‘They shall look on him whom they have pierced’ – God’s providence decreed that one of the soldiers should open his sacred side with a spear, so that blood with water might flow out to pay the price of our salvation. This blood, which flowed from its source in the secret recesses of his heart, gave the sacraments of the Church power to confer the life of grace, and for those who already live in Christ was a draught of living water welling up to eternal life.
Arise, then, bride of Christ, be like the dove that nests in the rock-face at the mouth of a cavern, and there, like a sparrow which finds its home, do not cease to keep vigil; there, like a turtle-dove, hide the fledglings of your chaste love; place your lips there to draw water from the wells of your Saviour. For this is the spring flowing from the middle of paradise; it divides and becomes four rivers, then spreads through all devout hearts, and waters the whole world and makes it fruitful.
O soul devoted to God, whoever you may be, run to this source of life and light with eager longing. And with the power of your inmost heart cry out to him: ‘O indescribable beauty of God most high! O pure radiance of everlasting light! O life that gives life to all life! O light that illuminates every light, and preserves in its undying splendour the myriad flames that have shone before the throne of your godhead from the dawn of time!
‘O water eternal and inaccessible, clear and sweet, flowing from the spring that is hidden from the eyes of all mortal men; the spring whose depths cannot be plumbed, whose height cannot be measured, whose shores cannot be charted, whose purity cannot be muddied.’
From this source flows the river which makes glad the city of God, so that with glad shouts and songs of thanksgiving we sing to you our hymns of praise, and by experience prove that with you is the fountain of life; and in your light we shall see light. (Cf. Liturgy of the hours, Office of the Readings – 2nd Reading)

ACT OF CONSECRATION AND REPARATION TO THE MOST SACRED HEART OF JESUS

The Most Sacred Heart. A Homily on the Solemnity of the Most… | by Rev. Mr. Matthew Newsome | Test Everything

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus! I adore you; I offer to you all that I am and all that I possess; I consecrate to you my soul with its faculties, my body with all its senses, my heart with all its affections, desiring in all things to honor, love, and glorify you; in thanksgiving for the numberless benefits that I have received from you, especially in the Holy Eucharist; in atonement for my own sins as well as in reparation for all the offenses that are committed against you in the sacrament of your love, and, finally, in humble supplication, that I may henceforth be faithful to you, that I may please you in thought, word, and deed, that I may suffer in patience and in perfect resignation to your holy will, that I may become like to you in meekness and humility, that I may persevere in your love and your grace to the end of my life, and that I may praise you and bless you with the saints and angels in eternity.

We beseech you, also, O good Jesus, by your Sacred Heart, overflowing with sweetness and mercy, to bless our Holy Father, the Pope, and our Holy Mother, the Church; to take under your special protection this congregation [my parish], our homes, our country, our rulers, our legislators, our bishops, our priests, and all Religious Orders. We recommend to you all our concerns, our friends, relatives, benefactors, and all those who have asked us to pray for them; those who are sick and those who are dying, and all who are under any affliction. Cast an eye of compassion on obstinate sinners, [the mistaken], and unbelievers. Give eternal rest to the faithful departed. Bless in particular the apostolic labours of those who are engaged in giving missions and retreats, in propagating the Faith in [mission] lands, in spreading your kingdom on earth, and in fostering devotion to Your Most Sacred Heart and to the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar. Amen.

My experience with the devotion to the sacred heart has made me realize the need to me more thankful for the numberless benefits that I have received from Jesus, especially in the Holy Eucharist and the need to make reparations. I blessed God to be an associate member of the two Hearts of Love.. The Promises of Jesus to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque to those who honor the Sacred Heart keeps me going.. The 8th Promise says… Those who propagate this devotion shall have their names written In My Heart never to be blotted out. Amen. I want my name… Read more »

By the reading of today, we aHre made to understand that mission towards the salvation of mankind was completed wholly and entirely accordingly as the scripture fortold, by doing the will of zhis father. We therefore should not take it Hfor granted for not seeking the will of the father when we find ourselves in a bad situation . We should always be conscious about what Jesus did for salvation. an d work hard to live in us for He is the way, the truth and live as He told us that he who followed Him and do the will… Read more »

My wife and I have been devotees of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary and we have received abundance of blessings from the devotion, though personally I have been backsliding by not making out time to attend the Thursday adorations. On 29 of December 2021 a wild wife consumed our Visitors room in a three bedroom apartment. Infact it was Sacred Heart of Jesus that came to our help when all hope was lost. We discovered that newspapers packed under the Alter of Sacred Heart in our parlour burnt under and was extinguished without causing more… Read more »
