The Most Sacred and Divine Heart of Jesus


First Friday & First Saturday of February

A little tribute to the Most Sacred Heart ever-present in all our Catholic altars, all over the whole wide world, right now! (how brilliant is that?) =))

Dearest Jesus Present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar

What have I, Lord Jesus, that Thou hast not given me?
What do I know, that Thou hast not taught me?
What can I do, if Thou dost not help me?
And what am I, if not united to Thee?

Pardon ... O! pardon my faults that have so wounded Thee.

Thou hast created me without any merit of mine,
Thou hast redeemed me without my cooperation.
Thou hast done much in creating me,
And still more in redeeming me,
Wilt Thou be less powerful
Or less generous in forgiving me?

For all the blood Thou hast shed
And the cruel death Thou hast suffered
Were not for the profit of the Angels who adore Thee,
But to my benefit and that of the sinners who implore Thee.

If then I have denied Thee, let me praise Thee.
If I have outraged Thee, let me love Thee.
If I have offended Thee, let me serve Thee.

For, to live without loving Thee,
And to love without suffering for THee,
O Jesus ... that would be death without Thee.

Taken from the book "Twenty Holy Hours" by Fr. Mateo Crawley-Boevery, SS.CC., Chapter III, First Friday of February

"Our Lord does not come down from Heaven everyday to lie in a golden ciborium. He comes to find another heaven which is infinitely dearer to Him - the heaven of our souls, created in His Image, the living temples of the Adorable Trinity."

-St. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face (The Little Flower)


Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Anne, Therese, I love You; Save Souls!

Jesu mitis et humilis corde, Fac cor nostrum secundum Cor tuum. (ter)

Deus propitius esto mihi peccatori.

Candlemas Day, A little prayer

A Prayer to Obtain a Special Favour through Saint Joseph

O blessed Saint Joseph, tender-hearted father, faithful guardian of Jesus, chaste spouse of the Mother of God, we pray and beseech thee to offer to God the Father His Divine Son, bathed in blood on the Cross for sinners, and through the thrice-holy Name of Jesse, obtain for us from the Eternal Father the favour we implore.

(Name your request)

Appease the Divine anger so justly inflamed by our crimes, beg of Jesus mercy for thy children. Amid the splendors of eternity, forget not the sorrows of those who suffer, those who pray, those who weep; stay the Almighty arm which smites us, that by thy prayers and those of thy most holy spouse, the Heart of Jesus may be moved to pity and to pardon. Amen.

St. Joseph, Pray for Us.

Jesus, Mary, Joseph, Anne, Therese; I love You; Save Souls!

Deus propitius esto mihi peccatori.

Jesu mitis et humilis corde, fac cor nostrum secundum Cor tuum. (ter)
