Sacred Heart of Jesus
I TRUST IN YOU
“Is in the Heart of Christ that the human heart learns to know the one true meaning of its life and its destiny. It’s in the Heart of Christ that the heart of man receives its capacity to love.”
SAINT JOHN PAUL II
Sacred Heart of Jesus Celebration
We celebrate the Sacred Heart of Jesus in a very special way during the month of June. Through a variety of activities--including series of conferences to deepen our grasp of the rich theology behind this devotion, regular Holy Hours in reparation to and adoration of the Sacrament of Love, among others, and culminating with the very festive annual Procession through the streets surrounding the Shrine of the Sacred Heart, followed by a solemn Holy Mass--we strive with a special zeal to advance in our effort to contribute to the sanctification of souls and the renewal, strengthening, and expansion of the Church, “for Christ to reign, for His Heart to reign.”

COR PROCESSION 2016
Filled with joy, we show our love for the
Sacred Heart of Jesus
LIVING IN HIS HEART
These three practices were requested by the Sacred Heart Himself of St. Margaret Mary of Alacoque in 1673. They characterize our covenant of love with Him:
Holy Hour of Reparation every Thursday
Holy Mass every First Friday of the Month
Daily Personal Consecration
“Come to me all those who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.”
THE TWELVE PROMISES
I promise you
These twelve promises, culled from the many promises contained in the private revelations made to St. Margaret Mary by the Sacred Heart of Jesus, are the assurance of Jesus’ special regard and blessing for those who faithfully practice devotion to His most loving Heart and work to attract others to it.
I will give them all the graces necessary for their state in life.
I will give peace to their families.
I will console them in all their afflictions.
Lukewarm souls will be made fervent.
I will abundantly bless their undertakings which redound to my greater glory.
Sinners will find in my Heart a fount and ocean of infinite mercy.
Fervent souls will be quickly raised to great perfection.
I will bless every place in which an image of my Heart is exposed and honored
I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts.
Those who shall promote this devotion shall have their names written in my Heart, never to be erased from It.
I promise you in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the First Fridays in nine consecutive months the grace of final perseverance; they shall not die in my disgrace, nor without receiving their sacraments. My divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment.
