Sacred Heart Novena
DAY 6 - JUNE 12
Jesus, Wounded Heartbeat of God, heal us for service.
Call to Prayer
As we ponder the wounded heart of Jesus and our call to service, we are challenged to open ourselves to the fragile flesh of our times. This flesh may be that of a child without hope, or an immigrant woman struggling to start a new life.
Scripture (Jeremiah 31:33)
This is the brand-new covenant that I will make with Israel when the time comes. I will put my law within them—write it on their hearts—and be their God. And they will be my people.
Silence: You are the hands, the feet, the voice of Jesus. Who waits for you today to come?…to speak words of hope and love?
