Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus has been a pillar of the Catholic faith for centuries. Many have grown in their love for God through regular prayer to the Sacred Heart. First Friday and other Eucharistic devotions have brought whole parishes and communities together in prayer around the Sacred Heart.
Here is a new novena that can be used for prayer to Our Lord every First Friday--or any time at all. Each reflection expands upon some our most beloved traditional ways of approaching and imagining the love of God that emanates from his Sacred Heart. They invite users to look deeply into their own hearts and find the heart of Christ there.
Those who shy away from traditional types of devotions will benefit by giving this novena a try. Anyone who is already devoted to the Sacred Heart will find in this pamphlet a fresh way to pray.
