Novena Sacred Heart

Novena Prayer and Beginning Today

Nine Day Prayer Service leading up to the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

From Franciscan Media, a short reflection:

Christian history bears witness to how devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus appears to have offered a remedy to the harsh spirituality of the Jansenist period of the middle 17th century. The teachings of this movement so emphasized human sin and depravity that fear of hell and damnation lurked in the hearts of many Catholics, making some people scrupulous and leaving most people fearful of damnation.
