June - the Month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

As the Month of May is dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, so the Month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Each day during June you will find posted here a reflection, practice, and ejaculatory prayer taken from an anonymous Month of the Sacred Heart which has been translated from the French. Before each meditation it is recommended that the Act of Consecration to the Sacred Heart be prayed. Simply follow the link provided each day. To return to the meditation you can use the link provided to the left of the Act of Consecration or your browsers back button. Following the meditation you may make use of any of the prayers found on the web page, Devotions to the Sacred Heart, which you can access from the Links section of the sidebar. On that page you will find various prayers to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

For a brief account of the life of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque to whom Jesus appeared, revealing His Sacred Heart and asking for reparation from the cold and ungrateful hearts of men, see this post from last year: Short Account of Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque.

As we make our way through the Month of the Sacred Heart, let us remember in a special way to pray for all priests that they will be inflamed with the burning love of the Sacred Heart.

Fr. Scott Bailey, C.Ss.R.
