The devotion to the Sacred Heart(Sacratissimum Cor Iesu in Latin) is known worldwide among Catholics and Christians of other denominations. The image stems from Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, who experienced apparitions of Jesus in 1673 and 1675. See our favorite Sacred Heart gifts and learn more about the devotion below.
Prayer to the Sacred Heart
O most holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing,
I adore you, I love you and will 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.
The devotion to the Sacred Heart was officially recognized 75 years after Sr. Margaret Mary Alacoque’s death. The Sacred Heart image depicts the heart of the resurrected Christ “pierced on the Cross”, which reveals “God’s boundless and passionate love for mankind.” Theologians surmise that the Sacred Heart symbolizes the “compassion of the heart of Christ towards humanity.” See more Sacred Heart items.
