Spirituality of the Sacred Heart


The Heart of Jesus:

I need Thy Heart, O Jesus,
I need a Friend like Thee,
A friend to sooth and pity,
A friend to care for me.
I need Thy Heart, O Jesus,
To feel each anxious care,
To tell my every want,
And all my sorrows share.
Sweet Jesus, keep me by Thee,
Close by Thee all the day,
And though I will, permit me not,
From Thy loved side to stray.
Uphold me with Thy gentle hand,
My tottering footsteps guide,
And though I fall ten thousand times,
I’ll fear not but confide.
And Thou wilt teach me, wilt Thou not?
Each duty to fulfil,
And it shall be my soul’s delight,
To do thy gracious Will.
And one request alone I make,
This recompense implore,
That by every thought, word and deed,
I may love you more and more.

By Rev D.W. McCann


Promises Of Our Lord to St. Margaret Mary

In favour of those who are devoted to His Sacred Heart.

I will give them all the graces necessary for their state in life.
I will establish peace in their families.
I will console them in all their difficulties.
I will be thrie secure refuge during life, and more especially at the hour of death.
I will shower down abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
Sinners shall find in My heart a source and boundless Ocean of mercy.
Tepid souls shall become fervent.
Fervent souls shall rise speedily to great perfection.
I will bless the houses in which the picture of my Sacred Heart shall be exposed and honoured.
I will give to priests the power of touching the most hardened hearts.
Persons who propagate this devotion shall have their names written in My Heart, and they shall never be effaced there from.
I will grant the grace of final repentance to all those who shall communicate on the first Friday nine months consecutively. They shall not die in mortal sin, nor without having received the last Sacraments, for My Divine Heart will become their secure refuge at that last moment.
