The month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. In our day and time there is much that goes on in our world and even in our Church that offends Our Lord's most Sacred Heart. I would like to begin this month's dedication with an Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart. We may not be able to put a stop to the evil that goes on, but we can certainly pray and console Our Lord for the outrages committed against Him.
Since this month also brings the Year for Priests to a close, I have also included a prayer to the Sacred Heart for priests.
More prayers and devotions can be found by clicking the image of St Margaret Mary Alacoque adoring the Sacred Heart on my sidebar. Jesus appeared to St Margaret Mary and asked her to spread the devotion to his Sacred Heart. He made 12 Promises to anyone who would practice this devotion.
May those of us who love and adore Our Lord bring some consolation to that Heart that was pierced for us.
For the way You are deserted in Your holy tabernacle,
For the crimes of sinners,
For the hatred of the impious,
For the blasphemies uttered against You,
For the sacrileges that profane Your Sacrament of Love,
For the outrages against Your divinity, For the injuries of which You are the adorable Victim,
For the coldness of the greater part of your children,
For the contempt of your loving invitation,
For the infidelity of those who called themselves Your friends,
For the abuse of Your grace,
For our own unfaithfulness,
For the incomprehensible hardness of our hearts,
For our long delay in loving You,
For our tepidity in Your holy service,
For Your bitter sadness at the loss of souls,
For Your long waiting at the door of our hearts,
For the heartless scorn that grieves You,
For Your loving sighs,
For Your loving tears,
For Your loving imprisonment,
For Your loving death,
* We will console you, 0 Lord
