Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

Mural of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

In revelations to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque in the 17th century, Jesus said:

“Behold this Heart, which has so loved men that It has spared nothing, even to exhausting and consuming Itself, in order to testify Its love. In return, I receive from the greater part [of humanity] only ingratitude, by their irreverence and sacrilege, and by the coldness and contempt they have for Me in this Sacrament of Love” [Holy Communion]. It is for this reason I ask thee that the first Friday after the octave of the Blessed Sacrament, be appropriated to a special feast to honor My Heart by receiving Communion on that day, and making reparation for the indignity that It [My Heart] has received. And I promise that My Heart shall dilate to pour out abundantly the influences of My Love on all who will render It this honor or will obtain My Heart being given this honor.”

An Act of Reparation can be found HERE, and Litany to the Sacred Heart of Jesus can be found HERE.
