Prayer to the Sacred Heart

We are approaching the end of the month of July, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. From this burning love for humanity, we have a refuge and a home. No man turning in this time of distress to the Sacred Heart will be rejected.

May Thy Heart dwell always in our hearts!
May Thy Blood ever flow in the veins of our souls!
O sun of our hearts, Thou givest life to all things by the rays of Thy goodness!
I will not go until Thy Heart has strengthened me, O Lord Jesus!
May the Heart of Jesus be the King of my heart!
Blessed be God. Amen.

Written by Saint Francis de Salle.

Let us not approach this devotion without discerning that this love certainly cost something. This Sacred Heart beating with love for man and his salvation, was pierced with a lance and scorned by men. Such is our Redeemer.
