The Sacred Heart of Jesus

Today is the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the World Day of Prayer for the Sanctification of Priests. In addition to today's May Devotion you will also find the lessons from Matins of the Divine Office I am also providing a link to some wonderful posts regarding the need for prayer for the sanctification of priests and the Sacred Heart at Don Marco's blog, Vultus Christi. I ask that you visit his blog and pray the Prayer of Reparation to the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus, especially on behalf of priests. Another prayer which can be prayed in the spirit of reparation our Lord requested of St. Margared Mary Alacoque is the Litany of the Sacred Heart which can be found in most prayerbooks or by doing a web search.

The most important thing to do today is assist at Mass and receive Holy Communion in reparation for the sins that continually grieve this most loving Heart. If that is not possible, then a visit to the Blessed Sacrament or a Holy Hour in the same spirit of reparation.

Knowing what our Lord has done for us,
can we not do something in return for him?
