Today on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, I was remembering when my grandmother gave me a prayer card of the Sacred Heart of Jesus when I was in Junior High School. On one side of the card shows the image of Jesus and His Sacred Heart exposed and the other is a beautiful prayer that since then I have been praying everyday! The prayer praises God, adores Him, implores His forgiveness and asks for the grace to do His will and for a holy death. What more can one ask?
Sure…we can ask for our “list of intentions”….which I also offer the Lord after I pray that prayer! But for myself, it’s a great way to begin the day.
Jesus loves us so much that he exposes His heart so that we will approach Him and receive His mercy.
