The Infinite Love of
the Sacred Heart of Jesus
Pope Leo XIII reigned as Pope of the Catholic Church
from 1878 to 1903. He said of the Sacred Heart of Jesus,
"There is in the Sacred Heart the symbol and express
image of the infinite love of Jesus Christ which moves
us to love in return." Devotion to the Sacred Heart
of Jesus is venerating Jesus Himself, for his heart
so loved all His people that He suffered and died for
them. The love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus is infinite.
It never dies but lives on, ready to welcome all the
followers of His word into eternal life with Him.

Comfort from distress
A secure life and the promise of eternal life

Prayer to the Sacred Heart by Saint Francis De Sales
May Thy Heart dwell always in our hearts!
May Thy Blood ever flow in the veins of our souls!
O sun of our hearts, Thou givest life to all things
by the rays of Thy goodness!
I will not go until Thy Heart has strengthened me, O
May the Heart of Jesus be the King of my heart!
Blessed be God. Amen.
While reciting the prayer of Sacred Heart, hold a Sacred
Heart of Jesus pendant fervently in your hand or wear
it over your heart. The Sacred Heart of Jesus pendant
is a reminder of His infinite love and sacrifice. The
love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus continues to grow
each day when the faithful offer devotions and novenas
in His honor. - St.
Francis Se Sales
