BULLETIN NOTES

FEAST OF THE WEEK

Friday 19: The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

2020 SACRED HEART NOVENA

The Sacred Heart Novena continues until Friday 19 June, the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is considered a symbol of "God's boundless and passionate love for humanity". Many have found comfort and solace praying the Novena, and this year we have particular reason as a community, a nation and a global people to find strength, patience and reassurance in God’s love for us.

The 2020 Novena is available to download for FREE from the Sacred Heart Messenger website.

Novena prayer

Lord Jesus, you have said, ‘Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you’. I come to you in faith and trust, in love and hope. Let me know your closeness to me, and your care for me and all who are dear to me.

My intention for this Novena is dear to me, and I know that what is important to me is important to you. Hear my prayer (mention your intention).

Grant what I ask, and may I always trust that in all that happens in life, you will be close to me as my friend, guide and saviour. And so, Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.
