Devotions to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus for the Month of June
COMMUNITY NOVENA TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
Recited daily in June
O Divine Jesus, during this Novena in honor of Thy Most Sacred Heart we commend unto Thee the petitions and intentions which have been placed upon the altar, that they may be granted as they are in accord with Thy Divine Will and for the good of souls. We further commend to Thy Sacred Heart our Bishop, Clergy, and Religious, all the lay members of our Community, all of our Fatima Cell members and Crusaders, and all of our benefactors and those for whom we are bound to pray. Inflame our hearts with the fire of Divine Love that we may grow daily in charity, piety, humility, love of God and one another. Send to us many pious, obedient, and devout vocations to assist us in our work for souls. Give to our Priests and Religious hearts patterned after Thine own. Make the lives of our families abound in holiness and piety. Protect and defend our Community and all the members of the Remnant Catholic Church against the attacks of our spiritual enemies, and confound the diabolical machinations of the legions of Hell. Console the sick, the dying, and those who are in anguish. Give to our youth a generous heart and a burning love of their holy Catholic Faith. Have mercy upon the Poor Souls in Purgatory, and grant to each of us the grace of final perseverance. Preserve us from all division, dissension and disunity and make us all to be of one heart, of one mind, and of one soul in Thee.
Sweet Heart of Jesus, we place our trust in Thee;
make us Thine own in time and in eternity. Amen.

ACT OF REPARATION TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
Adorable Heart of Jesus, glowing with love for us and inflamed with zeal for our salvation, O Heart ever sensible of our misery and the wretchedness to which our sins have reduced us, infinitely rich in mercy to heal the wounds of our souls, behold us humbly prostrate before Thee to express the sorrow that fills our hearts for the coldness and indifference with which we have so long requited the numberless benefits Thou hast conferred upon us. With a deep sense of the outrages heaped upon Thee by our sins and the sins of others, we come to make a solemn reparation of honor to Thy most Sacred Majesty. It was our sins that overwhelmed Thy Heart with bitterness; it was the weight of our iniquities that pressed down Thy face to the earth in the Garden of Olives and caused Thee to expire in anguish and agony on the Cross. But now repenting and sorrowful, we cast ourselves at Thy Feet and implore forgiveness. Adorable Heart of Jesus, source of true contrition and ever merciful to the penitent sinner, impart to our hearts the spirit of penance, and give to our eyes a fountain of tears, that we may sincerely bewail our sins now and for the rest of our days. O would that we could blot them out even with our blood. Pardon them, O Lord, in Thy mercy, and pardon and convert to Thee all that have committed irreverences and sacrileges against Thee in the Sacrament of Thy love, and thus give another proof that Thy mercy is above all Thy works. Divine Jesus, with Thee there is mercy and plentiful redemption. Deliver us from our sins. Accept the sincere desire we now entertain and our holy resolution, relying on the assistance of Thy grace, henceforth to be faithful to Thee. And in order to repair the sins and ingratitude by which we have grieved Thy most tender and loving Heart, we are resolved in the future ever to love and honor Thee in the most adorable Sacrament of the Altar, where Thou art ever present to hear and grant our petitions and to be the food and life of our souls. Be Thou, O compassionate Jesus, our Mediator with Thy heavenly Father, Whom we have so grievously offended. Strengthen our weakness; confirm our resolutions of amendment. And as Thy Sacred Heart is our refuge and our hope when we have sinned, so may It be the strength and support of our repentance, that nothing in life or death may ever again separate us from Thee. Amen.
DAILY NOVENA PRAYER
Hail, Heart worthy of Divine homage; I adore Thee in profoundest reverence, lost in admiration of Thy surpassing excellence and infinite love. For Thou art the Heart of the Son of Mary, the Heart formed by the Holy Ghost, the sanctuary of God Incarnate. I salute Thee, O most Sacred Heart of Jesus, worthy throne of the holy soul of Jesus, seat of the majesty and glory of God, abyss of all virtue and holiness. Thou art the Heart in which alone the Father is well pleased, the source of our salvation, the fountain of all grace and happiness. O Divine Heart of infinite mercy! Thou art the symbol of the infinite love of the Son of God for us poor children of men. Thou lovest us to excess, O compassionate Heart! Love of us urged Thee to die for us, to become a victim, a holocaust of love. Love impelled Thee to give Thyself entirely to us in the Blessed Sacrament, and makes Thee a prisoner on our altars. O Jesus, through a miracle of love, Thou givest me in the Holy Eucharist, Thy Sacred Heart as a nourishment for my soul, and as a pledge of Thy love. With fervent gratitude, I thank Thee for Thy tender love, and for all the graces that flow to us from Thy magnanimous Heart, the living fountain of salvation. Accept my humble adoration to repair the insults offered Thee by the sins of mankind, and in Thy mercy, pour out upon us the treasures of Thy love. With the desire to make this devotion more acceptable, I unite it with Thy love and merits, even with Thine own Sacred Heart. Heart of Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament, burning with love of us, inflame our hearts with love of Thee. May the Heart of Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament be praised, adored, and loved with grateful affection, at every moment, in all the tabernacles of the world, even to the end of time. Amen.
HYMN TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS
To Jesus’ Heart, all burning,
With fervent love for men,
My heart with fondest yearning,
Shall raise the joyful strain.
While ages course along,
Blest be with loudest song.
The Sacred Heart of Jesus,
By every heart and tongue!
Too true I have forsaken,
Thy love by willful sin;
Yet now let me be taken,
Back by Thy grace again.
