O Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place all our trust in Thee!

  1. I feel that the alliance of the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts of Jesus and Mary is the very heart of redemption itself. It is an absolutely essential devotion. I feel that the Divine Mercy devotion downplays this alliance.

    Saint Louis Marie de Montfort says that there is no salvation without Mary, for She is Co-Redemptorix, and Her Most Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart was perfectly united to the Sacred Heart of Son as He hang dying on the Cross.

    I also feel that the devotion to the Sacred Heart is the theological foundation of Fatima. Devotion to the Immaculate Heart does nothing to diminish the honour due to the Sacred Heart, and devotion to the Immaculate Heart gives all glory to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. This is surely why devotion to the Immaculate Heart obtains for us such great graces, as Our Lady of Fatima assures us.

        • Miles Immaculatae,

          Yes, well worth the effort and I should add that the effort to put the video together was made by our young video-masters, Christopher and Anthony. Thanks to their time and expertise, we have, voila! the beautifully presented hymn to the Sacred Heart above.

    • Fidelis,

      I agree – it’s very beautiful, an uplifting prayer set to music, which, according to St Augustine, means we are praying twice when we sing it (or, I think I can safely add, listen to it in reflective manner.)

  2. I’ve played the hymn over several times and I love it more and more with each hearing. I agree that it is inspiring.

  3. That’s a lovely hymn to the Sacred Heart – a long time since I’ve heard that one! Thank you for posting it. It’s very soothing to the soul.

    • Nicky, that is also a lovely hymn to the Sacred Heart, and has always been one of my favourites.

      I have to say, though, that since hearing O Take me to Thy Sacred Heart, that has become my all-time favourite!

  4. What lovely hymns to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, both uplifting and a prayer, I loved listening to them both.

    Miles Immaculatae, that you mention your feeling that devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is the theological foundation of Fatima. The devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

    This reminds me that Our Lord asked Saint Margaret Mary to tell the King of France to consecrate this country to His Sacred Heart. This consecration was never done – and 100 years later the French Revolution happened.

    Our lady appeared to the 3 children at Fatima in 1917 asked that Russia be consecrated to her Immaculate Heart. She appeared to Sister Lucia in 1929 and said that the time had come to ask the Pope and Bishops carry out the consecration. Heaven and we on earth still awaits that consecration. Just how late before will it be before it happens?

    • Theresa Rose,

      Your reminder of the dates when Our Lady appeared to ask for the Consecration of Russia underlines the fact that so many people are being misled into thinking that when enough laity have made the First Saturdays/brown scapular etc that the Consecration will be done. That’s not what Our Lady said when she appeared to ask for the Consecration way back early in the 20th century. The expectation was, clearly, that her request would be obeyed there and then. It is because of the popes’ disobedience to her request that the Consecration has still not been done – not because enough laity haven’t yet completed the First Saturdays.

      So, thank you for that reminder.

      • I have read somewhere that Sister Lucia had said that the consecration by John Paul II of the world (but not Russia specifically) had satisfied Our Lady’s request. I suspect that this is a lie. How do I counteract this lie?
