novenaAbout the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The whole purpose of the Apostolate of Christians today is, “to demonstrate the charity of Christ in all phases of human life and thus bring individuals and society back to God.” (Dorothy Dohen)
To demonstrate this charity, we must conform our heart to Christ, unite ourselves to His heart and ultimately LOSE ourselves in Him.
That’s what the Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is all about: Uniting our Hearts with His and devoting ourselves to Him.
So when we pray the Sacred Heart Novena together, we are praying that we can transform ourselves to love as Jesus Christ does. St. Margaret Mary Alacoque wrote, “Since Love makes Lovers One in Likeness, if we Love, let us model our lives on His.”
In preparation for our Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus which will be celebrated at Centocow on the 3rd June 2016, we will pray the Efficacious Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. You are all asked to especially remember to all Priests and challenges made to us in Jesus message to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque to Love everyone Faithfully with the endless Love of Jesus.
The Efficacious Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus has started and will finish on the 3rd June in the bus on our way to Centocow. We will say our Novena together with our daily prayers at 06h00, wet fast and we will say the same the Novena again at 12h00 to close and break our fast. For those who cant not eat for medical or whatever reasons you can add dry bread to your wet fast (drinks only).
May it be a blessed, peaceful and joyful journey of reflection, fasting and on our Spirituality and the Love that Christ is.
Stay Blessed

O' Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on us poor sinners and grant us the grace(s) which we ask of you, through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, your tender Mother and ours.

Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope! To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears! Turn, then, O most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary; pray for us, O holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
