It is already the middle of June! My Dad is making progress. I thank you so much for your prayers. God is so good. I also have a 90 year old friend in Washington DC that I met on a retreat to a Visitation Monastery in Bethesda MD when I was a senior in high school. We have remained friends for the past 40 something years. How old I am!! She is now in her last hours and is suffering so much. Please keep her in your prayers. Her name is Edmonia and she has loved God so much and now He is asking her to offer up so much suffering to His Most Sacred Heart. Please pray that she will have the grace to offer all to Him during this month of June. I pray that He will take her on one of the beautiful Feast Days found in this month of His Most Sacred Heart.
It was a Visitation nun named St. Margaret Mary that was given the devotion of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the request of a Holy Hour each Thursday night to make reparation for all the ingratitude and sins of the world.
Tomorrow starts the Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. This is a very powerful Novena before the Feast Day which is June 28th, Friday. This feast always falls within the Octave of Corpus Christi and therefore falls on a different day each year. The relation of the Sacred Heart and Corpus Christi are one and the same. Therefore, Jesus specifically asked that this feast of the Sacred Heart be placed where it is to St. Margaret Mary in order to show mankind that the love He bears for mankind is found in the Real Presence of the Eucharist. This is very beautiful and should increase our love for the Sacred Heart and for Jesus truly present in the Holy Eucharist.
May we increase our Holy Hours, participate in a Novena to the Sacred Heart and spread the devotion to the Most Sacred Heart with this Novena, Holy Hour as well as the Sacred Heart Badge which I will post again on this site.
