Devotion to the Sacred Heart

  • Chaplet of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

    (Using 5×6+3+6=39 beads)

    The chaplet is composed of a medal of the Sacred Heart, and thirty-nine beads, six of which are large, and thirty-three small. The small beads represent the thirty-three years of the mortal life of our Lord. The first thirty recall the years of His private life, and are divided into five groups of six; the three on the pendant recall the public life of the Savior.

    To pray this chaplet, start on the medal and recite the Anima Christi:
    Soul of Christ, be my sanctification
    Body of Christ, be my salvation
    Blood of Christ, fill all my veins
    Water from Christ’s side, wash out my stains
    Passion of Christ, my comfort be
    O good Jesus, listen to me
    In Thy wounds I fain would hide
    Ne’er to be parted from Thy side
    Guard me should the foe assail me
    Call me when my life shall fail me
    Bid me come to Thee above
    With Thy saints to sing Thy love
    World without end. Amen.

    On each large bead pray:
    “Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.”

    On each small bead pray:
    “Sweet Heart of Jesus, be Thou my love!”

    At the end of each group of six, say:
    ” Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation!”

    At the conclusion, say:
    “Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us. May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be praised, glorified, loved and preserved throughout the world now and forever more.  Amen.”

  • Prayers to The Sacred Heart of Jesus

    O most holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore You, I love You, and with a lively sorrow for my sins, I offer You this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient, pure, and wholly obedient to Your will. Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in You and for You. Protect me in the midst of danger; comfort me in my afflictions; give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, Your blessing on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death. Amen.

  • Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

    (St. Margaret Mary Alacoque)

    O Sacred Heart of Jesus, to Thee I consecrate and offer up my person and my life, my actions, trials, and sufferings, that my entire being may henceforth only be employed in loving, honoring and glorifying Thee. This is my irrevocable will, to belong entirely to Thee, and to do all for Thy love, renouncing with my whole heart all that can displease Thee.

    I take Thee, O Sacred Heart, for the sole object of my love, the protection of my life, the pledge of my salvation, the remedy of my frailty and inconstancy, the reparation for all the defects of my life, and my secure refuge at the hour of my death. Be Thou, O Most Merciful Heart, my justification before God Thy Father, and screen me from His anger which I have so justly merited. I fear all from my own weakness and malice, but placing my entire confidence in Thee, O Heart of Love, I hope all from Thine infinite Goodness. Annihilate in me all that can displease or resist Thee. Imprint Thy pure love so deeply in my heart that I may never forget Thee or be separated from Thee.

    I beseech Thee, through Thine infinite Goodness, grant that my name be engraved upon Thy Heart, for in this I place all my happiness and all my glory, to live and to die as one of Thy devoted servants.  Amen.

    Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

    ii. O my Jesus, you have said: ‘Truly I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father in my name, he will give it to you. ‘ Behold, in your name, I ask the Father for the grace of……. (here name your request) Our Father… Hail Mary…Glory Be To the Father… .

    Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

    iii. O my Jesus, You have said: ‘Truly I say to you, heaven and earth will pass away but my words will not pass away. ‘ Encouraged by Your infallible words I now ask for the grace of…… (here name your request) Our Father…Hail Mary… Glory Be to the Father…

    Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

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

    Say the Hail, Holy Queen and add: St. Joseph, foster father of Jesus, pray for us.
