Below is the Sacred Heart Novena that begins on 16th June and concludes with the beautiful Feast of the Sacred Heart on 24th June. It was written by Patrick Carberry SJ
Lord Jesus Christ, your heart was moved with love for those who sought you. You healed the sick, fed the hungry and forgave sinners. You showed to those who would listen the way to true life, for you are the Way, the Truth and the Life. Your heart is still moved today by your people and their 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. Amen.
