Sacred Heart of Jesus and The Miracle Prayer

The Miracle Prayer

Lord Jesus, I come before Thee, just as I am, I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In Thy Name, I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give Thee my entire self, Lord Jesus, I accept Thee as my Lord God and Savior. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul, and spirit.  Come Lord Jesus, cover me with Thy Precious Blood, and fill me with Thy Holy Spirit, I love Thee Lord Jesus, I praise Thee Lord Jesus, I thank Thee Jesus, I shall follow Thee every day of my life. Amen.  Mary, My Mother, Queen of Peace, St. Peregrine, the cancer saint, all the Angels and Saints, please help me.  Amen. 

Say this prayer faithfully, no matter how you feel. When you come to the point where you sincerely mean each word with all your heart, Jesus will change your whole life in a very special way. You will see.

The Hour of Great Mercy

 

In His revelations to St. Faustina, Our Lord asked for a special prayer and meditation on His Passion each afternoon at the three o’clock hour, the hour that recalls His death on the cross.

At three o’clock, implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy. In this hour, I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of My Passion (Diary, 1320).

As often as you hear the clock strike the third hour, immerse yourself completely in My mercy, adoring and glorifying it; invoke its omnipotence for the whole world, and particularly for poor sinners; for at that moment mercy was opened wide for every soul. In this hour you can obtain everything for yourself and for others for the asking; it was the hour of grace for the whole world — mercy triumphed over justice. (1572)

My daughter, try your best to make the Stations of the Cross in this hour, provided that your duties permit it; and if you are not able to make the Stations of the Cross, then at least step into the chapel for a moment and adore, in the Most Blessed Sacrament, My Heart, which is full of mercy; and should you be unable to step into the chapel, immerse yourself in prayer there where you happen to be, if only for a very brief instant. (1572)

From these detailed instructions, it’s clear that Our Lord wants us to turn our attention to His Passion at the three o’clock hour to whatever degree our duties allow, and He wants us to ask for His mercy.

In Genesis 18:16-32, Abraham begged God to reduce the conditions necessary for Him to be merciful to the people of Sodom and Gomorrah. Here, Christ Himself offers a reduction of conditions because of the varied demands of our life’s duties, and He begs us to ask, even in the smallest way, for His mercy, so that He will be able to pour His mercy upon us all.

We may not all be able to make the Stations or adore Him in the Blessed Sacrament, but we can all mentally pause for a “brief instant,” think of His total abandonment at the hour of agony, and say a short prayer such as “Jesus, Mercy,” or “Jesus, for the sake of Your Sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.”

This meditation, however brief, on Christ’s Passion brings us face-to-face with the cross, and, as Pope John Paul II writes in Rich in Mercy, “It is in the cross that the revelation of merciful love attains its culmination” (8). God invites us, the Holy Father continues, “to have ‘mercy’ on His only Son, the crucified one” (8). Thus, our reflection on the Passion should lead to a type of love for Our Lord which is “not only an act of solidarity with the suffering Son of man, but also a kind of ‘mercy’ shown by each one of us to the Son of the Eternal Father.”

Alliance of the Two Hearts Novena, June 2 – 10

June 2 – 10
Feast Day: June 19

Entrust yourself, your family, or other special intentions to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

In the Alliance of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary Novena, the Marians will be offering 9 days of Holy Mass in preparation for the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and the Memorial of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The expression “Alliance of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary” was coined by Pope John Paul II in his Angelus address of September 15, 1985. He exhorted the faithful to unite with the “admirable alliance” of the Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

In the Bible, the “heart” is not only a vital organ — it is a reference to the disposition of the whole person. The word “heart” is used in the Gospel in reference to only two individual persons: Jesus (Mt 11:29) and Mary (Lk 2:19, 51). Their two Hearts made the perfect response to the Father for the sake of our salvation. We see the pierced Hearts as an expression of that selfless love.

We turn again with trust to Jesus and Mary, to look upon us with merciful love.

Please send us your special intentions to be remembered in this novena.  http://www.thedivinemercy.org/novenas/index.php

Enkindle In me The Fire Of God’s Love

Today’s Excerpt from Divine Mercy Minutes on love

Thursday, May 27

Before every Holy Communion I earnestly ask the Mother of God to help me prepare my soul for the coming of her Son, and I clearly feel her protection over me. I entreat her to be so gracious as to enkindle in me the fire of God’s love, such as burned in her own pure heart at the time of the Incarnation of the Word of God (Diary, 1114).

I do not know how to live without God, but I also feel that God, absolutely self-sufficient though He is, cannot be happy without me … (Diary, 1120).Source: http://thedivinemercy.org/divinemercyminutes.php
