Sacred Heart of Jesus

Here is the gilt statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus that sits high atop the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, just behind the main train station in Rome. Pope Francis recently visited this church.

PRAYER TO THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS

O most holy Heart of Jesus, fountain of every blessing: I adore you, I love you, and with a lively sorrow for my sins, I offer you this poor heart of mine. Make me humble, patient, pure, and wholly obedient to your will. Grant, good Jesus, that I may live in you and for you. Protect me in the midst of danger; comfort me in my afflictions; give me health of body, assistance in my temporal needs, your blessing on all that I do, and the grace of a holy death. Within your Heart I place my every care. In every need let me come to you with humble trust saying: Heart of Jesus, help me! Amen.
