Novena To The Sacred Heart Of Jesus – Day 1

Novena To The Sacred Heart Of Jesus – Day 1

*Day 1 -Sacred heart Novena*

*June /19/2019*

*Peace be with you!*

*REFLECTION*

It is said that St. Padre Pio recited this novena daily for all those who requested his prayers. This novena (repeating the same prayer for nine consecutive days for a particular intention or devotion) can be prayed at any time, though it is a tradition to begin on the traditional feast of Corpus Christi (Thursday after Trinity Sunday) leading up to the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. On the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus itself it is a tradition to pray the Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart.

In this Novena to the Sacred Heart, we pray for nine days in trust and confidence in the mercy and love of Jesus Christ, that He might grant our request. At each point where the prayer indicates that you should state your request, mention the same request, and use the same request for each of the nine days of the novena.

*In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.*

*I Confess to You*

I confess to almighty God, and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have sinned through my own fault, in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done, and in what I have failed to do; and I ask the Blessed Mary, ever virgin, all the angels and saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.

Amen.

*Come Holy Spirit*

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

*The Lord’s Prayer* [Our Father]

Our Father, Who art in heaven, 

Hallowed be Thy Name. 

Thy Kingdom come. 

Thy Will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. 

And forgive us our trespasses, 

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil. Amen.

*Hail Mary*

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee.

Blessed art thou amongst women,

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners,

now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

*The Prayer to the Sacred Heart*

Oh Lord Jesus Christ, to Your most Sacred Heart I confide this intention {name petition}.

Only look upon me, then do what Your love

Inspires. Let Your Sacred Heart decide.

I count on You. I trust in You. I throw myself on Your mercy. Lord Jesus, You will not fail me.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in You.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in Your love for me.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, Your kingdom come.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, I have asked You for many favors, but I earnestly implore this one.

Take it, place it in Your open Heart.

When the Eternal Father looks upon it, He will see it covered with Your Precious Blood.

It will be no longer my prayer, but Yours, Jesus. Sacred Heart of Jesus,

I place all my trust in You. Let me not be disappointed. Amen

*Prayer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus*

O most holy heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore you, I love you, and with lively sorrow for my sins I offer you this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient, pure and wholly obedient to your will. Grant, Good Jesus, that I may live in you and for you. Protect me in the midst of danger. Comfort me in my afflictions. Give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, your blessing on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death. Amen.

Jesus Said There Is No Better Novena Than This, and It Has Only 11 Words

Jesus Said There Is No Better Novena Than This, and It Has Only 11 Words

A thousand prayers do not equal one act of abandonment.

I ask God for what I need. A lot. Sometimes I feel like I run through a continuous strain of “Lord, please give me this” or “I need that” from morning to night. My needs sometimes spill over into conversations with friends too, when I ask them to pray on my behalf for a variety of intentions.

Although I try not to let my own needs be the exclusive focus of my prayer, they’re a big part of the reality. So much so that sometimes, as I hear my own thoughts and petitions, I wonder if I sound too needy. I wonder if I am too needy.

We’re all needy: It’s part of the human condition. Making peace with that reality and learning how to respond to it is an important step in recognizing who God wants to be for us.

While our neediness might make us feel a little vulnerable and weak, God sees it differently. He knows our needs before we know them ourselves. Our needs glorify him, giving him the opportunity to overwhelm us with his goodness and mercy.

Don Dolindo Ruotolo, an Italian priest who lived from 1882-1970, deeply understood the relationship between our neediness and God’s goodness.

Ordained at the age of 23, Don Dolindo spent his life in prayer, sacrifice and service. He heard confession, gave spiritual guidance and cared for those in need. Don Dolindo was a contemporary of the more widely known saint, Padre Pio. When some pilgrims from Naples, where Don Dolindo resided, went to Padre Pio in Pietrelcina, Padre Pio responded: “Why do you come here, if you have Don Dolindo in Naples? Go to him, he’s a saint!”

The simple friar is becoming most known for his spirituality of surrender. Well aware of the depth of human weakness and neediness, Don Dolindo saw this as a way of fostering continual union with God.

While inviting us to continually bring our worries and concerns to the Lord, Don Dolindo teaches us that the focus doesn’t stay on our needs. He encourages us to bring our needs to God and then be at peace, leaving God free to care for us in his wisdom. Don Dolindo tells us that the Lord has promised to fully take on all the needs we entrust to him. In the words of Jesus to Don Dolindo:

Why do you confuse yourselves by worrying? Leave the care of your affairs to me and everything will be peaceful. I say to you in truth that every act of true, blind, complete surrender to me produces the effect that you desire and resolves all difficult situations. (…)

A thousand prayers do not equal one act of abandonment; don’t ever forget it. There is no better novena than this: O Jesus, I abandon myself to you. Jesus, you take over.

The many healings and favors obtained by people who went to Don Dolindo and followed his advice, as well as those that have been attributed to his intercession, give witness to the power of grace that can be unleashed through such abandonment to Divine Providence.

Don Dolindo wrote what Our Lord revealed to him about divine abandonment from the perspective of Jesus addressing the soul. The prayer of surrender can be read in its entirety, or prayed in nine shorter segments as a daily novena.

I have been praying Don Dolindo’s novena regularly for almost a year now, and have found it to be not only a reminder of the importance of bringing my needs and worries to the Lord, but also a source of great consolation and encouragement.

Don Dolindo Ruotolo is currently a Servant of God; his cause for beatification is open.

Novena To Our Mother of Perpetual Help – Day 9

Novena To Our Mother of Perpetual Help – Day 9

OPENING PRAYER

O Mary, Mother of Perpetual help, I salute thee with the filial devotion. I renew the consecration of myself, and all I have, to thee. I thank thee for thy maternal protection and for the many blessings that I have received through thy wondrous mercy and most powerful intercession. In all my necessities I have recourse to thee with unbounded confidence O Help of Christians, O Mother of Mercy. I beseech thee now to hear my prayer and to obtain for me of thy divine Son the favor that I request in this novena.

( Here mention your petition)

Obtain for me, also, dearest Mother of Perpetual Help, the grace that I may imitate thee and become more like to thee in the practice of the virtues of humility, purity, submission to the will of God, and charity. Be my protectress in life, guard and guide me in dangers, direct me in difficulties, lead me in the way of perfection, and assist me in the hour of my death, that I may come to Jesus, and with thee enjoy Him, bless Him, and love Him eternally in Heaven. AMEN.

NINTH DAY

O MARY, If — as St. Peter says — death is terrible even for the just, how much more so will it be for a sinner who has many times deserved hell, So when I think of that moment on which depends my lost for eternity, I begin exceedingly to fear and to tremble. O Mother of Perpetual Help, in thee alone is my hope, for thou are the advocate of sinners and patron of the dying I place myself from henceforth in thy blessed hands, to thee I entrust the care of my sinful soul: dispose of me, do with me as thou pleasest, but preserve me from an evil death. Reject, if thou wilt, all my other prayers, provided thou hearest this one for a good death; or may a peaceful and holy death be the crowning answer to all the prayers I address to thee henceforth to the end of my days. And When my last hour shall come, grant, O my good Mother, that I may worthily receive all the helps the Holy Church affords to the dying: And be thou pleased thyself o come then to my aid, to encourage, console and defend me from the assaults of Satan and that thy name, with that of JESUS, may be my last thought, and my last sigh, so that I may go to heaven to sing thy mercies. Come, O Lady of Perpetual Help, to help me at the hour of my death. AMEN.

Prayer for Ourselves

O Mother of Perpetual Help, with the greatest confidence I come before thy Sacred Picture in order to invoke thine aid.

Have pity, compassionate Mother, on us and on our families; and especially in this my necessity
