June is one of those months that seems to fly by due to graduations, weddings, and the beginning of summer. If you’ve missed your chance to reflect on the Sacred Heart of Jesus during this month that is devoted to it, I encourage you to try to set aside just a few moments of time to do so today (or bookmark this post and catch up over the weekend!).
These beautiful quotes will guide you in your prayer time. Please feel free to print them and share with others. The images are excellent to include in a card to someone or use as bookmarks in your Bible. To enlarge each quote, just click on the image. We hope you continue to enjoy and use all of the resources that we make freely available to you at Catholic-Link.org!
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. — St. Margaret Mary Alacoque
(from the book Devotion To The Sacred Heart by Fr. John Croiset, S.J.)
