The Sacred Heart of Jesus – Short Meditations for June.


A little book of Meditations on the Sacred Heart needs no introduction.  The subject is one that appeals to all — to sinners who long for better things, to those who are struggling along the road to heaven, often with faint hearts and weary steps, as well as to those who are closely united to Our Lord in the bonds of mutual love.

The Devotion to the Sacred Heart is one that has been reserved in its fulness for these later days, when the Church has to do battle not so much against open persecution as against indifference and pride and corroding skepticism.  Against these there is no remedy like that which Jesus Himself taught us: “Learn of Me, for I am meek and humble of heart.

Easter, 1889.


Ejaculations to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. 

1.  O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I implore that I may ever love Thee more and more.

2.  Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine.

3.  Sweet Heart of Jesus, be my love!

4.  Heart of Jesus, create in me a clean heart, and renew a right spirit within me.

5.  O how good and pleasant it is to dwell in this Heart!  Who is there who does not love a heart so wounded?  Who can refuse a return of love to a heart so loving?

6.  Heart of Jesus, most meek, most humble, most patient!  School my heart in meekness, patience, and humility.

7.  Heart of Jesus, burning with love for me, inflame my heart with love of Thee.

8.  Heart of Jesus, have compassion upon me!
