The Sacred Heart of Jesus


O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I Place My Trust in Thee


O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee,

Whatever may befall me, Lord, though dark the hour may be;

In all my woes, in all my joys, though nought but grief I see,

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in Thee.
When those I loved have passed away, and I am sore distressed,

0 Sacred Heart of Jesus, I fly toThee for rest.

In all my trials, great or small, my confidence shall be

Unshaken as I cry, dear Lord, I place my trust in Thee.
This is my one sweet prayer, dear Lord, my faith, my trust, my love,

But most of all in that last hour, when death points up above,

O sweet Savior, may Thy face smile on my soul all free.

Oh may I cry with rapturous love, I've placed my trust inThee.



Jesus is the only true friend of our hearts.
(St. Margaret Mary)



Memorare to the Sacred Heart of Jesus


Remember, O most kind Jesus, that none who have had recourse to Your Sacred Heart, implored its assistance, or called for mercy, have ever been abandoned. Filled, and animated by this same confidence, O divine Heart, Ruler of all hearts, I fly to You, and oppressed beneath the weight of my sins, I prostrate myself before You. Despise not Your unworthy child, but grant me, I pray, an entrance into Your Sacred Heart. Sustain me in all my combats and be with me now, and at all times, but especially in the hour of my death. O gracious Jesus! O amiable Jesus! O loving Jesus!

I like the Memorare to the Sacred Heart that is also prayed to Mary.

One of the earliest sacred images that I can recall as a child is that of the Sacred Heart. My mom has a very strong devotion to it.

That is also one of my earliest memories; we had a picture of the Sacred Heart with "The family that prays together stays together" at the bottom. I usually get my home consecrated to the Sacred Heart, but I have moved a couple of times in the last year,and haven't done this home yet.
Bless your mom for her devotion!
