Sacratissimum Cor Iesu

By tradition, the Catholic Church dedicates each month of the year to a certain devotion. In June, it is the Sacred Heart of Jesus (the feast of which normally falls in this month). Pope Benedict XVI urges Catholics everywhere to renew their devotion to the Sacred Heart during this month of June. The Sacred Heart represents Christ's love for all mankind, and our devotion to it is an expression of our faith in His mercy.

From the depth of my nothingness, I prostrate myself before Thee, O Most Sacred, Divine and Adorable Heart of Jesus, to pay Thee all the homage of love, praise and adoration in my power. Amen.

-- St. Margaret Mary Alacoque


Sacred Heart of Jesus....have mercy on us.
