Novena to the Sacred Heart

“The dynamic at the root of the Carmelite quest is a longing for God deep in the heart. The Carmelite journey is a pilgrimage to the heart of God whom we eventually discover has been dwelling deep within our own hearts all the time.”
–excerpt from Sacred Heart by Johan Bergström-Allen, T.O.C.

Join us daily in praying the Sacred Heart Novena!

The Novena to the Sacred Heart

To be prayed daily 9 days before the Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart.
(June 15 – 23)

Lord Jesus Christ, today we renew the dedication of our family to Your Sacred Heart. We remember Your love for us. We pledge our love in return, placing You at the center of our hearts and our family life. We wish to live our lives in union with You and share in Your mission of love to all. Lord, accept this dedication and keep us always in your Sacred Heart.

V. Heart of Jesus, glowing furnace of charity, draw us closer to Yourself and to each other through the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist.
