Sacred Heart Novena
DAY 4 - JUNE 10
Jesus, Suffering Heartbeat of God, reveal the path of justice and peace.
Call to Prayer
Christ is always with us, always asking for room in our hearts. It is with the heart of anyone in need that He longs for shelter. And giving shelter or food to anyone who asks for it, or needs it, is giving it to Christ. “Room for Christ” by Dorothy Day
Scripture (Mark 12:33)
And to love God with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
Silence: Is there someone who needs food?…encouragement?…a listening ear?
