Novena to the Sacred Heart - Starts Today!

Sacred Heart is next Friday. The Novena begins today. It should be added soon to a new section on the Grotto website for Novenas. In the meanwhile, you can get the Novena that will be used at Assumption Grotto right here. There may be others better suited for private recitation, but some may want to follow along with this on the days they cannot make it to Grotto.

You can find some good info here....

EWTN's web page for the "Two Hearts"

Priest: Glory, love and thanksgiving to the Sacred heart of Jesus!

(All kneel)

People: O Lord Jesus Christ, meek and humble of Heart, who invites
those who labor and find life burdensome to come to you for rest and comfort;
may we comprehend the breadth, and length, height and depth of the mystery
of your divine love and obtain those life-giving waters of grace and mercy which
flow from your most Sacred Heart. May we seek to love you with our whole heart,
soul, mind and strength and to love others as you love them.

Priest: Jesus, meek and humble of Heart
People: make our hearts like unto thine.

Priest: Heart of Jesus, consumed with love for us:
People: set our hearts on fire with love for you.

Priest: Sacred Heart of Jesus, strengthened in your agony by an Angel:
People: strengthen all those who suffer.

Priest: Let us pray.
May your Holy Spirit, we beseech you, O Lord
enkindle in us that fire which our Lord Jesus Christ sent
upon the earth from the innermost recesses of his Sacred Heart,
and which He willed should burn with exceeding warmth:
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.

People: Amen.
Priest: In the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

People: Amen.

Te Deum Laudamus! Home
