Welcome to the website of The Sacred Heart Messenger, publication of the Irish Jesuits, with the aim ‘to spread the love of God in the heart of Jesus Christ’. On this website you can find out more about The Messenger, renew your subscription, take out a subscription for the first time, offer a petition to be placed at the altar of our chapel, contact us and meet the amazing team behind our little red magazine.
January 2018 will mark the 130th anniversary of the publication of The Sacred Heart Messenger. This is a special landmark for us and underscores the cherished relationship that our magazine has with you, our readers, and wider Irish society.
Due to the incredible work of our many promoters around Ireland, The Messenger has stayed consistently at the top-end of magazines in Ireland – we sell over 50,000 print copies per month and it is read by twice that number! Whether you read it in print or online, I want to thank you and for joining in this mission to spread the knowledge and love of God in the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
We receive about 100 letters a day from our readers; letters of thanks and prayer intentions. I offer Mass twice each week for all who request our prayers, and place their intentions in our chapel.
Donal Neary SJ, Editor.
