It is the month of June.  And you know what this whole month is dedicated to?  You’re right, it’s the month of the Sacred Heart!

We are coming up on two very important feast days of the Church: On Friday, The Sacred Heart of Jesus; and on Saturday, the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  Here are some prayers that you can pray as a family to the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Prayer to the Sacred Heart

O most holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing, I adore you, I love you and with a lively sorrow for my sins.  I offer you this poor heart of mine.  Make me humble, patient, pure, and wholly obedient to your will.  Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in you and for you.  Protect me in the midst of danger comfort me in my afflictions; give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, your blessings on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death.  Within your heart I place my every care.  In every need let me come to you with humble trust saying, Heart of Jesus, help me.  Amen.

Daily Renewal Prayer for the Family

Dear Sacred Heart of Jesus, we renew our pledge of love and loyalty to you. Keep us always close to your loving heart, and to the most pure Heart of your Mother. May we love one another more and more each day, forgiving each other’s faults as you forgive our sins. Teach us how to see you in those we meet outside our home.  Please help us keep our love for you always strong by frequent Mass and Communion.

Thank you, dear Jesus, King and Friend of our family, for all the blessings of today. Protect us during this night. Help us all to get to heaven! Amen.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, thy kingdom come! Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for our family!  St. Joseph, friend of the Sacred Heart, pray for us!  Our patron Saints and guardian angels, pray for us! Amen.

 Prayer to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

O Immaculate Heart of Mary, refuge of sinners, I beg of you by the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and by the graces God has granted you since your Immaculate Conception, the grace of never going astray again.  Mother, keep me, a sinner, constantly bathed in the light of your Immaculate Heart.  Amen.
