She was rebuffed by her superior and by theologians for a time, about the validity of the visions, but remained humble, obedient, and charitable to those who persecuted her until the truth of the mission given to her by Our Lord convinced those who opposed her. It was based on this Christly inspiration that St.
Prior to this time, there was a devotion to the love of Jesus and to the wounded Heart of Christ, but not established as the devotion is today. The practice encouraged by the saintly woman, at the guidance of Christ, included the Holy Hour on Thursdays, to share in the mortal sadness He endured when abandoned by His Apostles in His Agony, and to receive Holy Communion on the first Friday of every month.

June is the Month of the Sacred Heart
Email a valid email. Eva Intro. Diocese or Parish. Mindful, alas, that we ourselves have had a share in those great indignities, which we now deplore from the depths of our hearts, we humbly ask Thy pardon and declare our readiness to atone by voluntary expiation, not only for our own personal offenses, but also the sins of those who, straying far from the path of salvation, refuse in their obstinate infidelity to follow Thee, their Shepherd and Master, or who, renouncing the vows of their Baptism, have cast off the sweet yoke of Thy law.
We are now resolved to expiate each and every outrage committed against Thee; we are determined to make amends for the manifold offenses against Christian modesty in unbecoming dress and behavior, for all the foul seductions laid to ensnare the feet of the innocent, for the frequent violation of Sundays and Holydays, and the shocking blasphemies uttered against Thee and Thy saints. We wish also to make reparation for the insults to which Thy Vicar on earth and Thy priests are subjected; for the profanation, by conscious neglect or terrible acts of sacrilege, of the very Sacrament of Thy Divine Love; and lastly for the public crimes of nations who resist the rights and the teaching authority of the One, True Church which Thou hast founded.
Would, O Divine Jesus, that we were able to wash away such abominations with our blood. We now offer, in reparation for these violations of Thy Divine honor, the satisfaction Thou didst once make to Thine Eternal Father on the Cross, and which Thou dost continue daily on our altars; we offer it in union with the acts of atonement of Thy Virgin Mother, of all the saints, and of Thy pious faithful on earth; and we sincerely promise to make recompense, as far as we can with the help of Thy grace, for all neglect of Thy great love and for the sins we and others have committed in the past.
Henceforth we will live a life of unwavering faith, of purity, of spotless conduct, of perfect observance of the precepts of the Gospel, especially that of charity.
The Month of the Sacred Heart
We promise to the best of our power to prevent others from offending Thee, and to bring as many as possible to follow Thee. O loving Jesus, through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our model in reparation, deign to receive the voluntary offering we make of this act of expiation; and by the crowning gift of perseverance keep us faithful unto death in our duty and the allegiance we owe to Thee, so that we may all one day come to that happy home, where Thou with the Father and the Holy Ghost, livest and reignest, God, forever, unto ages of ages.
Hail, Heart worthy of Divine homage; I adore Thee in profoundest reverence, lost in admiration of Thy surpassing excellence and infinite love. I salute Thee, O most Sacred Heart of Jesus, worthy throne of the holy soul of Jesus, seat of the majesty and glory of God, abyss of all virtue and holiness. Thou art the Heart in which alone the Father is well pleased, the source of our salvation, the fountain of all grace and happiness. O Divine Heart of infinite mercy! Thou art the symbol of the infinite love of the Son of God for us poor children of men.
Thou lovest us to excess, O compassionate Heart! Love of us urged Thee to die for us, to become a victim, a holocaust of love. Love impelled Thee to give Thyself entirely to us in the Blessed Sacrament, and makes Thee a prisoner on our altars. With fervent gratitude, I thank Thee for Thy tender love, and for all the graces that flow to us from Thy magnanimous Heart, the living fountain of salvation.
Accept my humble adoration to repair the insults offered Thee by the sins of mankind, and in Thy mercy, pour out upon us the treasures of Thy love. With the desire to make this devotion more acceptable, I unite it with Thy love and merits, even with Thine own Sacred Heart. Heart of Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament, burning with love of us, inflame our hearts with love of Thee. May the Heart of Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament be praised, adored, and loved with grateful affection, at every moment, in all the tabernacles of the world, even to the end of time.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, look down upon us humbly prostrate before Thee to adore Thee, to praise Thee, to thank Thee, to repair our past offenses and to consecrate ourselves to Thy Love. Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, give us all the graces necessary in our state of life. Lord, Thou hast made us this promise. Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, be our secure refuge during life, and above all in death.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, bestow abundant blessings upon all our undertakings. Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, may fervent souls quickly mount to high perfection. Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, grant to those who go to Communion on the first Friday in nine consecutive months, and to those who make the five first Saturdays, the grace of final penitence; grant that they shall not die in Thy disgrace nor without receiving the Sacraments. Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place in Thee all our confidence, fearing all things of our weakness and hoping all things in Thy kindness. Through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, be the sole Object of our love, the Protector of our life, the Support of our weakness, the Remedy of our inconsistency, the Repairer of all our sins, the Assurance of our salvation and our sure Refuge at the hour of death.
We are Thine and Thine we wish to be; but to be more surely united with Thee, behold, each one of us freely consecrates himself today to Thy Most Sacred Heart. Many indeed have never known Thee: many too, despising Thy precepts, have rejected Thee. Have mercy on them all, most merciful Jesus, and draw them to Thy Sacred Heart. Be Thou King, O Lord, not only of the faithful who have never forsaken Thee, but also of the prodigal children who have abandoned Thee: grant that they may quickly return to their Father's house lest they die of wretchedness and hunger. Be Thou King of those who are deceived by erroneous opinions or whom discord keeps aloof, and call them back to the harbor of Truth and unity of the Faith, so that soon there may be one flock and one Shepherd.
Be Thou King also of those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or Islamism, and refuse not to deliver them out of darkness into the light and the Kingdom of God. Turn Thine eyes of mercy toward the children of that race, once Thy chosen people. Of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may It now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life. Grant, O Lord, to Thy Church assurance of freedom and immunity from harm, give peace and order to all nations, and make the earth resound from pole to pole with one cry: Praise to the Divine Heart that wrought our salvation; to It be glory and honor forever.
As an act of adoration and reparation, let us say five times, in honor of Our Lord's Five most Sacred Wounds:. To Jesus' Heart, all burning, With fervent love for men, My heart with fondest yearning, Shall raise the joyful strain.

Read more on this picture and its meaning. One of the following is prayed daily during June:. Behold at thy feet, O Mother of Perpetual Help! O Mother of Mercy! I hear thee called by all, the Refuge and the Hope of sinners; be then, my refuge and my hope. Assist me, for the love of Jesus Christ; stretch forth thy hand to a miserable fallen creature, who recommends himself to thee, and who devotes himself to thy service forever.
I bless and thank Almighty God, Who in His mercy has given me this confidence in thee, which I hold to be a pledge of my eternal salvation. It is true, dearest Mother, that in the past I have miserably fallen into sin, because I had not recourse to thee. I know, that with thy help, I shall conquer. I know, too, that thou wilt assist me, if I recommend myself to thee; but I fear, dear Mother, that in time of danger, I may neglect to call on thee, and thus lose my soul.
This grace then, I ask of thee, and this I beg, with all the fervor of my soul, that in all the attacks of Hell, I may ever have recourse to thee. O Mary! O Mother of Perpetual Help! O purest Mary! O sweetest Mary! Let thy name henceforth be ever on my lips. Delay not, O Blessed Lady, to help me whenever I call on thee; for in all my temptations, in all my needs, I shall never cease to call on thee, ever repeating thy Sacred Name, Mary! O what consolation, what sweetness, what confidence, what emotion fills my soul when I utter thy Sacred Name, or even only think of thee!
I thank the Lord for having given thee, for my good, so sweet, so powerful, so lovely a name. But I will not be content with merely uttering thy name; let my love for thee prompt me ever to hail thee, Mother of Perpetual Help! Thou art the dispenser of all the gifts which God grants to us miserable sinners; and for this end He has made thee so powerful, so rich and so bountiful, in order that thou mayest help us in our misery.
Thou art the advocate of the most wretched and abandoned sinners who have recourse to thee; come to my aid, dearest Mother, for I recommend myself to thee. In thy hands I place my eternal salvation, and to thee I entrust my soul. Count me among thy most devoted servants; take me under thy protection, and it is enough for me. For, if thou protect me, dear Mother, I fear no thing; not from my sins, because thou wilt obtain for me the pardon of them, nor from the devils, because thou art more powerful than all Hell together; nor even from Jesus, my Judge, because by one prayer from thee, He will be appeased.
But one thing I fear, that in the hour of temptation, I may through negligence fail to have recourse to thee and thus perish miserably. Obtain for me, therefore, the pardon of my sins, love for Jesus, final perseverance, and the grace to have recourse to thee, O Mother of Perpetual Help. Through the infinite merits of Jesus Christ which we offer by Thee to the Eternal Father, do Thou obtain for sinners the grace of a sincere repentance; for the dying, the grace of a holy death; for the souls of our deceased relations, the grace of deliverance from the flames of Purgatory; and, for all of us the grace of pardon and abundant mercy.
Thou hast seen the wounds which Jesus has been pleased to receive for our sake; Thou hast seen the Blood of Thy Son flowing for our salvation; Thou knowest how Thy Son desires to apply to us the fruit of His Redemption. Behold I cast myself at Thy feet, and pray Thee to obtain for my soul the grace I stand so much in need of. O Mary, most loving of all mothers, obtain for me from the heart of Jesus, the Source of every good, this grace here mention it.
I trust not in my merits but in Thy powerful intercession; I trust in Thy goodness; I trust in Thy motherly love.
7 Ways to Honor the Sacred Heart of Jesus
All bless Thee as the assured help of the miserable; all feel the benefit of Thy maternal protection. With confidence, then, do I present myself before Thee in my misery. See, dear Mother, the many evils to which we are exposed; see how numerous are our wants.
