Sweet Heart of Jesus, we implore, O make us love Thee, more and more.

  1. Just a word to encourage readers who may not be familiar with the history of the Devotion to the Sacred Heart to click on the links given underneath the video. Then, for sure, you will want to come back here tomorrow to say…

    A very happy Feast of the Sacred Heart to one and all!

    • Theresa Rose,

      Thank you – that’s one of my all time favourite hymns to the Sacred Heart.

      Beautiful! Thank you! (love the colour of her dress, as well 😀 )

    • Margaret Mary,

      I think most of us do the First Fridays for the sake of obtaining the 12th Promise but they’re really all wonderful graces.

      • Laura

        There is another beautiful devotion to the Precious Blood and the Holy Wounds.
        I’m sure we all know someone in our families who has lost or have drifted from the faith, by beginning this devotion and persevering for 3 years you would receive immense grace and the five promises Our Lord promised to those that persevere for the 3 years

        I found it easiest to say last thing at night with evening prayers then I didn’t forget.

      Many thanks for that link to the 12 Promises of the Sacred Heart. One of our readers told me years ago that she had personally experience # 7 – once she put up a picture of the Sacred Heart and began to appreciate the devotion, she did, in fact become fervent, got in touch with Catholic Truth to see if she could attend one of our early meetings and has been in touch with us ever since. So, it’s a very powerful devotion.

    • Happy Feast day everyone – I’m going to be away from my computer for most of today, but hope everyone will celebrate this beautiful Feast and enjoy the day.

      If you can make it to Father Stephen Dunn’s Silver Jubilee of ordination Mass this evening, 7pm in Holy Cross church, Dixon Avenue, Glasgow, that would be great. It’s a sung, Traditional Latin Mass. Invitation posted at the top of the blog Home page.

  2. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this Feast Day thread.

    The sung traditional Latin Mass to celebrate Father Stephen Dunn’s 25th anniversary of ordination to the priesthood was absolutely beautiful. I didn’t do a head count but there was a very good attendance indeed. My Great Nephews were invited to serve, and later had their photo taken with Fr Dunn, so that was lovely – as was the delicious buffet provided afterwards.

    I’ll close this thread now, with sincere gratitude to everyone who contributed to celebrating this beautiful Feast of the Sacred Heart. Thank you!
