Blessed Solemnity Of The Sacred Heart of Jesus!

2015.06.12 Sweet Heart of Jesus Be My Love (IMG_3166)

…I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor present things, nor future things, no powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord. -Rom. 8:38-39

Did you know that June is devoted to the Sacred Heart of Jesus?
Below are the 12 Promises that were revealed to St. Margaret Mary to those who have devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.  We encourage you to start the devotion now if you have not done so.

  1. I will give them all the graces necessary in their state of life.
  2. I will give peace in their families and will unite families that are divided.
  3. I will console them in all their afflictions.
  4. I will be their secure refuge during life and above all in death.
  5. I will bestow abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
  6. Sinners shall find in my Heart the source and infinite ocean of mercy.
  7. Tepid souls shall become fervent.
  8. Fervent souls shall rise quickly to great perfection.
  9. I will bless those places where the image of my Heart shall be exposed and honored and will imprint my love on the hearts of those who would wear this image on their person. I will also destroy in them all disordered movements.
  10. I will give to priests who are animated by a tender devotion to my Divine Heart the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
  11. Those who promote this devotion shall have their names written in my Heart, never to be blotted out.
  12. I promise you in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all-powerful love will grant to all those who communicate on the First Friday in nine consecutive months, the grace of final penitence: they will not die in my disgrace, nor without receiving their Sacraments. My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus,
fountain of eternal life,
your Heart is a glowing furnace of love.
You are my refuge and my sanctuary.
Consume my heart with the burning fire
with which yours is inflamed.
Pour down on my soul those graces
that flow from your love.
Let my heart be united to yours.
let my will be conformed to yours in all things.
May your will be the rule of all my desires and actions.
-St. Gertrude the Great
