Because of the coronavirus pandemic, there will be no public celebration of the 55th annual Novena in Honor of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus at Sacred Heart Parish in Altoona, which was scheduled for March 23-31.
For your convenience, the prayer is offered here:
O Lord, Jesus Christ, to your Most Sacred Heart I confide this intention [pause here to mention your request in silence]. Only look upon me, then do what your Heart inspires. Let your Sacred Heart decide. I count on you. I trust in you. I throw myself on your mercy.
Lord Jesus! You will not fail me. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I trust in you. Sacred Heart of Jesus, I believe in your love for me. Sacred Heart of Jesus, your kingdom come.
O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I have asked for many favors, but I earnestly implore this one. Take it; place it in your Sacred Heart. When the Eternal Father sees it covered with your Precious Blood, He will not refuse it. It will no longer be my will, but yours, O Jesus. O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in you. Let me never be confused. Amen.
