Novena in Honour of the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Day Five – 14 June

day five novena to the sacred heart 14 june 2020

Has no-one condemned you?

Today’s Scripture
Jesus straightened up and said to her, ‘Woman, where are they?   Has no-one condemned you?’   She said, ‘No-one, sir.’   And Jesus said, ‘Neither do I condemn you.   Go your way and from now on do not sin again.’… John 8:10-11

Reflection for the Fifth Day
I read something recently which went like this:  ‘You do not have to be good before God will love you, you do not have to repent before you will be absolved by God.   It is all the other way around.   If you are good, it is because God’s love has already made you so, if you want to be forgiven, that is because God is forgiving you because you want to be forgiven!’

Today’s Prayer
Jesus, as I reflect upon Your Sacred Heart,
help me to have a deep felt knowledge
that You long to forgive my sins.
Your Sacred Heart is love made visible.
I need to love Your love and repent and repair.

Daily Invocation
Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place all my trust in you.

Novena Prayer
Lord Jesus,
the needs of Your people open Your heart in love for each of us.
You care for us when we are lost,
sympathise with us in loneliness
and comfort us in mourning;
You are closest to us where we are weakest.
You love us most, when we love ourselves least;
You forgive us mos, when we forgive ourselves least
and You call us to spread Your love in whatever way we can.
Lord Jesus, Your heart is moved with compassion
when we are suffering,
when we need your help
and when we pray for each other.
I ask You to listen to my prayer during this Novena
and grant what I ask.
…………………………. (Mention your intention silently.)
If what I ask, is not for my own good and the good of others,
grant me what is best,
that I may build up Your kingdom of love in our world.

If you would prefer St Alphonsus’ Novena go here for Day Five:


Passionate Catholic. Being Catholic is a way of life - a love affair both with God and Father, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, our most Blessed and Beloved Virgin Mother Mary and the Church. "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco With the Saints, we "serve the Lord with one consent and serve the Lord with one pure language, not indeed to draw them forth from their secure dwelling-places, not superstitiously to honour them, or wilfully to rely on the, ... but silently to contemplate them for edification, thereby encouraging our faith, enlivening our patience..." Blessed John Henry Newman Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This is a papal fidelity site. Loyal and Obedient to the Current Pope and to the Magisterium United With Him.
