Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus

O Sacred and adorable Heart of Jesus!
Furnace of Eternal charity!
Ocean of infinite mercy!
Consolation of the afflicted!
Refuge of sinners!
and Hope of the whole world!
I most fervently adore Thee,
and unite my heart,
my affections,
and supplications,
to the perpetual homage Thou Thyself renderest
to the Divinity on our Altars.
Most amiable Heart,
which hast loved us with an eternal love,
supply Thyself for my insensibility,
and receive my desire at least of loving Thee
with all the ardour and sincerity Thou so justly meritest.
But remember, O adorable Heart!
that Thou hast not disclosed Thyself to us
only as an object of our adorations;
Thou desirest much more to engage our love,
and to become the ground
and motive of our loving confidence.
For this end,
Thou wert pierced through with a lance on the Cross;
and for the same purpose Thou remainest
a daily Victim of Thine own love on our Altars.
O infinitely compassionate Heart of Jesus!
which was overwhelmed with sorrow in the Garden of Olives,
at the view of our spiritual and corporal miseries,
I recur of Thee now with all the confidence Thou desirest
I should have in the extent of Thy power
and the riches of Thy mercy.
Convinced that those things
which are impossible to human beings
are infinitely easy to Thee,
and relying with an humble steadfast faith
on the sacred words of Truth itself,
that whatever we ask the Father
in the Name of Jesus should be granted,
I now most humbly implore in that adorable Name,
in virtue of that promise,
and through the abundant mercies of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
the particular favour I petition for in this Novena.
( here our humble prayer petition )

O blessed saint Gertrude!
and all you glorious servants of Christ;
who while on earth were particularly devoted
to the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
join your prayers with mine,
and implore from the Divine Object of all your devotion
the obtaining of the petition which I now make,
and specially offer up through your intercession.
Beg likewise, from this adorable Heart,
which has dominion over all hearts,
and could in a moment change the most obdurate,
to have compassion on those who are
in the dreadful state of mortal sin,
and to open to us the treasure of its mercy
at the hour of our death.


Let us always remember the Poor Souls

Eternal Father, I offer You the most precious blood of thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal church, for those in my own home and in my family. Amen

Prayer for the Conversion of Scandinavia

300 Days, once a day. (See Instructions.) 54 Leo XIII, April 18, 1885.

O good Jesus , prostrate at Thy feet, we humbly implore Thee, by thy most Sacred Wounds and by the Precious Blood which Thou didst shed for the salvation of the whole world, that Thou wouldst deign to cast a look of pity on the peoples of Scandinavia, seduced from the Faith for so many centuries, and plunged in the darkness of heresy, separated from thy Church, deprived of the participation of the adorable Sacrament of thy Body and Blood, and of the other sacraments instituted by Thee, as the refuge of souls in life and in death.

Remember, O Redeemer of the world, that for these souls too Thou didst suffer bitter death, with the loss of all thy blood. Bring back, O good Shepherd, these wandering sheep ofthine to the one fold and to the healthy pastures of thy Church, so that they may form with us one flock , tended by Thee, and by thy Vicar on earth, the supreme Pontiff, whom, in the person of the Apostle St Peter, Thou didst commission to feed thy sheep and thy lambs. Graciously hear, O good Jesus, the prayers which we offer Thee with the most lively trust in the love of thy Sacred Heart, and to thy most Holy Name be praise, glory, and honor, world without end. Amen.
