Pray with us
A few prayers extracted from our MSC Daily Prayer Book
Remember, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart
the great things the Lord has done for you.
He chose you for his Mother,
He wanted you close to his cross.
He gives you a share in his glory.
He listens to your prayer.
Offer him our prayers
of praise and thanksgiving;
present our petitions to him.
Let us live like you
in the love of your Son
that his Kingdom may come.
Lead all people
to the source of living water
that flows from his heart,
spreading over the world
hope and salvation,
justice and peace.
See our trust in you;
answer our prayer.
Show yourself always our Mother. Amen
During this novena, in December 1854 we promised the
Blessed Virgin that if she heard our prayer we would take
the title, Missionaries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and that
we would strive to carry out the beautiful and
profound meaning of this title.
DAILY PRAYER OF FATHER CHEVALIER
Saviour of the world and source of holiness,
look with kindness
on all whom you have chosen
to be Missionaries of your loving Heart.
Ask your heavenly Father
to keep us in your love,
and sanctify us in the truth
so that you may be glorified in us
and we may reflect your goodness.
Ask your Father to keep us from evil
that we may always be united in bonds of love.
As you are one with your Father,
so may we be one with each other
in your divine Heart,
whose sentiments shall forever be ours
and to which we consecrate ourselves
in time and for eternity. Amen.
The greatest charity, the most perfect unity
will always prevail among members
of the little community of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Gentleness, humility, obedience, a spirit of poverty,
of zeal, of sacrifice, of devotedness will be their lot.
Family Prayer to the Sacred Heart
Sacred Heart of Jesus,
we entrust our family to you.
Look down upon us and reveal to us
the treasures of your love, goodness, and grace in your Heart.
Forgive our sins and fortify our weaknesses,
that we may serve you faithfully as you deserve.
These favors we ask for ourselves and
for every family in our neighborhood and homeland.
Heart of Jesus, pierced by a soldier’s lance on Calvary, be
our refuge in life and our gateway to paradise.
PRAYER FOR GRACES
THROUGH THE INTERCESSION OF THE
SERVANT OF GOD, JULES CHEVALIER
In union with all the sick, and with all those who ask
graces of God through the intercession of the Servant of
God, Jules Chevalier, let us say:
God, our Father,
you loved us so much that you gave us Jesus, your Son,
for the salvation of the whole world.
We thank you for having given your Church
Father Jules Chevalier
to offer the Word of Life
and thus bring a remedy to the ills of his time.
Contemplating with Mary
“the one who was pierced”,
he was the enthusiastic apostle of the
Sacred Heart and of Jesus’ merciful love,
which he wished to make loved everywhere.
Father, by his intercession,
and according to your will,
grant us the grace
that we ask of you......(pause)......inspired as we are
by the living hope
that he will be proposed to the faithful
for veneration as an intercessor and model. Amen.
