Litany and novena to the Sacred heart.

Go here.

I once had a booklet that explained all the titles given in the litany, with a meditation on each, but it's gone now.

This is a novena I found. I'll probably use it before the feast of the Eucharistic heart of Jesus.:

Lord Jesus, Who hast deigned to open by Thy special love the unutterable goodness and riches of Thy Heart to Thy Bride, the Church: grant to us, Thy servants, that we may merit to be enriched and refreshed by Thy heavenly graces, flowing from this sweetest of fountains.


V. Heart of Jesus, burning with love for us.

R. Set our hearts on fire with love of Thee.

O Lord Jesus Christ, who hast said: Ask and ye shall receive, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you; we beseech Thee, grant us the gift of Thy divine love, that with all our heart, our words and deeds we may ever love Thee and never cease praising Thee.

R. Amen.

V. O Sacred Heart of Jesus, most obedient to the will of the Father.

R. Incline our hearts to Thee, that we may do always what is pleasing to Thee.

O divine Heart of Jesus, grant, we pray Thee, eternal rest to the souls in purgatory, final grace to those who are about to die, true repentance to sinners, the light of faith to non Christians, and Thy blessing to us and all who are dear to us. To Thee, therefore, we commend all these souls, and in their behalf we offer unto Thee all the merits of Thy Sacred Heart.

R. Amen.

V. O Sacred Heart of Jesus, thirsting for our salvation.

R. Recall us sinners to Thy Heart, that we may not die in our sins.

Let us pray.

O God, Who mercifully deigns to bestow upon us in the Heart of Thy Son, which was wounded for our sins; the infinite treasures of love, grant, we beseech Thee, that we who pay Him the devout homage of our affection may likewise exhibit a worthy reparation for our sins. Through the same Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.

(Lastly, don't forget to keep reading this.
