Prayers of the Faithful

For the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus (June 11, 2021) or for use throughout the year

  • May our devotion to the Sacred Heart help us, day by day, to see, love, and follow Jesus. We pray to the Lord. Lord, hear our prayer.

  • May we continue to focus on the Sacred Heart of Jesus, to lead us to the very heart of who Jesus is, the divine person who took on our humanity, who journeys with us, who meets us on the road, as he did with the discouraged disciples on the road to Emmaus. May He guide us on a path to love and peace. We pray to the Lord. Lord, hear our prayer.

  • May we nurture relationships of generous love, modelled on the Trinity, and made present in our world in the life of Jesus, especially in his generous love symbolized by the Sacred Heart. We pray to the Lord. Lord, hear our prayer.

  • We pray that we may be called to a sacrificial and generous love for others, represented in the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We pray to the Lord. Lord, hear our prayer.

  • May the symbol of the Sacred Heart, the compassionate love of Jesus, remind us of our need to have a thoughtful and humane personal warmth at the center of who we are, a sensitivity which shapes how we relate to ourselves, and to God, and to those around us. That we may foster a culture of compassion each day, we pray to the Lord. Lord, hear our prayer.
