An Act of Contrition:

O, my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended you. I detest all my sins because of your just punishment, but most of all because they offend you, my God, who are all-good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin.

Meditation for Day 4

Dearest Holy Mother, you are generous with all who seek you, have mercy on me. I entrust into your hands this knot which robs the peace of my heart, paralyzes my soul and keeps me from going to my Lord and serving Him with my life. Undo this knot in my love...., O mother, and ask Jesus to heal my paralytic faith which gets down hearted with the stones on the road. Along with you, dearest Mother, may I see these stones as friends. Not murmuring against them anymore but giving endless thanks for them, may I smile trustingly in your power.

Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for me.

Mary is the Sun and no one is deprived of her warmth.

Dear Beloved Devotees of the Sacred Heart.

SacredHeart 1As we enter the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we begin an intense 30 days of true devotion to the Heart that so loved us. Let us pause and reflect briefly on this devotion:

The Church, governed and taught by the Holy Spirit, has approved and recommended devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and has instituted the Feast of the Sacred Heart which has increased in extent and solemnity over the course of many years.

Since its inception after the apparitions to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, it is celebrated as a Solemnity on the Friday after Corpus Christi. Through this Apostolate of Prayer, millions across the world offer all their prayers, works and sufferings for the intentions of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

This devotion is most appropriate during these times of religious indifference and cold-heartedness when Jesus shows to the world His Sacred Heart as a symbol of God’s infinite love - the symbol of His own self-sacrificing love for all people. He shows His Divine Heart as a furnace whose burning rays of love are able to restore our faith and rekindle love in hearts that have grown cold and ungrateful….”But why His Heart“, you may ask? It is because, in every language, the heart is regarded as the natural symbol of love and affection. What more natural and expressive symbol is there then, of the excessive love of Jesus than His Sacred Heart.

The emotions that flow from this Heart are: 
* burning zeal for the glory of the Father;
* abundant love for all people;
* profound humility;
* unconquerable patience;
* self-sacrifice; and 
* Devotion of self to the Father’s will.

Coupled with perpetual adoration of the Lord in the Blessed Sacrament and unceasing acts of gratitude and mercy, especially during this Jubilee Year, we should also have a burning desire for our hearts to be more and more like His. 

“Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make our hearts like unto Thine” that we too, may be planted and rooted in love and become merciful like the Father.

I love you All

Mme Bridgette Goeieman

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
