PRAYER: A Novena To The Sacred Heart Of Jesus For The Virtue Of Compassion

Author unknown

O my Jesus, you have said, “Truly I say to you, ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you.”  Behold I knock.  I seek and ask for the grace of feeling compassion for my friends and loved ones.

O my Jesus, you have said, “Truly I say to you, if you ask anything of the Father in my name, he will give it to you.”  Behold, in your name, I ask the Father for the grace of feeling compassion for my enemies.

O my Jesus, you have said, “Truly I say to you, Heaven and Earth will pass away but my words will not pass away.”  Encouraged by your infallible words I now ask for the grace of feeling compassion for myself.

O Sacred Heart of Jesus, for whom it is impossible not to have compassion on the afflicted, have pity on me, a miserable sinner, and grant me the graces that I ask of you, through the sorrowful and immaculate heart of Mary, your tender Mother and mine.

Amen.
