Litany to the Sacred Heart of Jesus


The Litany to the Sacred Heart of Jesus is a popular Catholic prayer. It is a wonderful prayer to recite before or after Mass, during Eucharistic Adoration, during the Month of June (which is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus) or every day to come closer to His most Sacred Heart.

Jesus revealed his Sacred Heart devotion to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque in several mystical visions between 1673-1675.

“Announce it and let it be announced to the whole world, that I set neither limit nor measure to my gifts of grace, for those who seek them in my Heart.” — Revelation of Our Lord to St Margaret Mary Alacoque
