Novena to the Sacred Heart – Day 3

Quote

“O Sacred Heart of Jesus, I choose you as my only refuge. Be to me strength in conflict, the support of my weakness, a light and a guide in the darkness of this life, and finally atonement for all my faults and the sanctification of all my desires and actions. I unite mine with yours and offer them to you, in order that you may come to me to unite me to yourself. Amen.” -St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Reflection

To whom do we go for comfort? Of what do we make our refuge in tumultuous times? St. Margaret Mary Alacoque (1647-1690), who received revelations of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and promoted its devotion, reminds us that the best possible place and truly the only possible place where we can find our refuge, our strength, our light, and our salvation, is in the Heart of our most loving Lord, Jesus Christ. Today, bring to Jesus that with which you struggle the most. Surrender to His Heart all the worries and concerns of your own!
