JUNE PRAYERS - Month of the Sacred Heart

America MaryOffering

My God, I offer You all my prayers, works, joys, and suffering
in union with the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
for the intentions for which He pleads and offers Himself
in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, in thanksgiving for Your favors,
in reparation for my sins, and in humble supplication
for my temporal and eternal welfare,
for the needs of our holy Mother the Church,
for the conversion of sinners,
and for the relief of the poor souls in purgatory.

The Month of June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart. The Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the Friday following the second Sunday after Pentecost. In addition to the liturgical celebration, many devotional exercises are connected with the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Of all devotions, devotion to the Sacred Heart was, and remains, one of the most widespread and popular in the Church. Pray the Novena.

 


The Pardon Prayer of Fatima

My God, I believe, I adore, I love, and I trust You.
I ask pardon for those who do not believe, do not adore, do not love, and do not trust You.

He knelt, bending his forehead to the ground. With a supernatural impulse we did the same, repeating the words we heard him say the prayer. After repeating this prayer three times the angel rose and said to us, "Pray in this way. The hearts of Jesus and Mary are ready to listen to you."

Prayer to End Abortion

Lord God, I thank you today for the gift of my life,
And for the lives of all my brothers and sisters.
I know there is nothing that destroys more life than abortion,
Yet I rejoice that you have conquered death
By the resurrection of your son.
I am ready to do my part in ending abortion.
Today I commit myself never to be silent,
Never to be passive, never to be forgetful of the unborn.
I commit myself to be active in the pro-life movement,
And never to stop defending life
Until all my brothers and sisters are protected,
And our nation once again becomes a nation
With liberty and justice not just for some but for all,
Through Christ our Lord. Amen
