With the sweet fires of June’s heat bearing down on us, we are drawn, like moths, to the Eternal Flame of Jesus’ Most Sacred Heart. It is a Flame of Love so powerful….that it literally reaches out to each of us…where ever we are…no matter whatever state our soul may be in… whether it be in a state of grace or even in a state of sin… and calls each of us by name… His Most Sacred Heart burns for us… Pretty Awesome stuff, right?? Well, that’s exactly what Jesus is : Awesome…
In the Holy Mother Church we are called to honor and to pray to the Sacred Heart of Jesus throughout the month of June. It is the source of love for all of mankind…It is the Heart from which all of mankind was born…and saved from eternal damnation. We love Thee Oh Lord… in Your Beating Heart… which is the Spring of all that is Good…all that is Holy. We Love Thee Oh Lord, and we praise Thee…For giving to us your beating Heart in the Eucharist…which is so often mistreated and abused...We love Thee Oh Lord...
During this month of June, let us take a moment to dedicate our prayers…And if nothing more… perhaps just a portion of them…to the Sacred Heart of Jesus….which was bloodied, bruised and scourged on our account…and let us pray that we may never stray from the embrace of our Dear Lord… who spread out His loving arms on that Cross of Calvary…Giving to us... all of mankind... His Most Loving Sacred Heart….offered as a Sacrifice... a Most Complete Sacrifice for the sins of man... enduring suffering and immeasurable pain for our salvation.
Let us remember, It is the same Heart that is now Glorious in Heaven, seated at the right hand of the Father…reigning on high…Never ceasing in His Love for us.
Oh Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on me a sinner.
Prayer to the Sacred Heart
Hail! O Sacred Heart of Jesus, living and quickening source of eternal life, infinite treasure of the Divinity, and burning furnace of divine love. Thou art my refuge and my sanctuary, O my amiable Savior. Consume my heart with that burning fire with which Thine is ever inflamed. Pour down on my soul those graces which flow from Thy love, and let my heart be so united with Thine, that our wills may be one, and mine in all things, be conformed to Thine. May Thy divine will be equally the standard and rule of all my desires and of all my actions. Amen.
