Sacred Heart Devotion – Day 1

Devotion to the Sacred Heart – June 01

Sacred Heart of Jesus 01

The incarnation of the Messiah, the Son of God is a mystery of faith which has to be recognized without doubt. Because of this mighty miraculous feat the Sacred Heart of Jesus has a profound association with divine nature. Jesus is divine because He is God and human because He is also man. Since Jesus is God, the people on earth are striving to adore, praise and glorify Him in a manner similar to that of the holy angels and heavenly hosts. Since Jesus has both divine and human nature in Him, He is our brother and friend and it is essential that we approach Him with hope and love.

While visiting the Sacred Heart of Jesus, if we do strongly believe that we are conversing with the Divine Heart, how much fear, devotion and respect we would express! This Sacred Heart is the fullness of all divinity and all treasures. Therefore it is imperative that we adore the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ. We can place all our necessities and all the goodness we wish for in the blessed presence of this Divine Heart. If you are afflicted by mental agony and dubiosity, then the most adorable Sacred Heart is beckoning us, “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened”.

If we are suffocated by poverty, ridiculed and scorned, then this Sacred Heart will make us understand that worldly fortunes and worldly recognition are of least importance and what really matters is attaining eternal life. If our family life is disturbed, unhappy and quarrelsome then we have to plead for the mercy of the Sacred Heart. Then our homes will be abundantly blessed. When we are in need of blessings of different dimensions, then the remembrance that Jesus’ Sacred Heart is a wellspring of all treasures and blessings will strengthen us.

Therefore, you who are devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, place all your spiritual and worldly needs before the Sacred Heart, through Mary Immaculate at the beginning of this month and pray and plead for its fulfillment. Also offer all the prayers and rituals you do this month for the fulfillment of these petitions.

INVOCATION (JAPAM) ‍

Lord God Almighty, full of goodness, You have promised to Saint Margaret Mary that all the favors we ask through the Sacred Heart of Jesus will be certainly granted. I prostrate myself before Your mighty prowess. Bless me all throughout my life, to know and love Your Divine Son and specially to follow the path of St. Margaret Mary during this month. O My God! I do not desire respect and prosperity from You. My only desire is that Your Divine Voice be heard and glorified by all mankind and that Your Divine Son Jesus will rule over the hearts of all human race.

Grant to Your Church, O Lord, assurance of freedom, protect our Supreme Pontiff and make haste that all may know the haven of truth, and have unity of faith, so that there may soon be one fold and one Shepherd! Lord, be merciful to the unfortunate sinners, console the souls in Purgatory and be merciful to me, your unworthy servant. O Immaculate Heart of Mary, O Mother of all blessings, I firmly believe that through your powerful intercession, all my prayers and petitions will be granted. Amen.

Our Father… (3). Hail Mary… (3) Glory be… (3)
