Make My Heart Like Unto Thine


"Oh Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine." Yesterday we celebrated the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and this is such a beautiful and fitting prayer for this glorious day. I thought for this blog post I would just share the amazing promises that Our Lord gave to St. Margaret Mary for all those who will honor His Sacred Heart.

1. I will give them all the graces necessary for their state in life. 
2. I will establish peace in their families. 
3. I will comfort them in their trials. 
4. I will be their secure refuge during life, and, above all, in death. 
5. I will shed abundant blessings on all their undertakings.
6. Sinners will find in My Heart an infinite ocean of mercy. 
7. Lukewarm souls will become fervent. 
8. Fervent souls will rapidly grow in holiness and perfection. 
9. I will bless every place where an image of My Heart shall be exposed and honored. 
10. I will give to priests the gift of touching the most hardened hearts. 
11. The names of those who promote this devotion will be written in My Heart, never to be blotted out. 
12. I promise thee, in the excessive mercy of My Heart, that My all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the First Friday of nine consecutive months, the grace of final penitence; they shall not die in My disgrace nor without receiving their Sacraments; My Divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in this last moment. 

One way to honor Him is by having an image exposed in our homes of the Sacred Heart, or perhaps praying the Litany of the Sacred Heart, or even better spending time in adoration before His Eucharistic Heart. Let us not lose a single opportunity to turn our hearts to Our Lord's and ever more be united to Him.
