Third Day of the Novena to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart

Third Day - September 2

Meditation - The Samaritan Woman

Jesus said: “Believe me, woman, the hour is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know; for salvation comes from the Jews. But the hour will come – in fact it is here already – when true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth: that is the kind of worshipper the Father wants. God is spirit, and those who worship must worship in spirit and truth”.

John 4:21-24

Let us pray...

Lord Jesus, “perfect adorer of the Father”: – teach us to know how to adore in spirit and in truth, so that there may well up in us the desire of your presence.

Lord Jesus, you invite us to pray by calling God “Our Father”, – teach us to live, like you, as beloved daughters and sons of the Father, in universal sisterhood and brotherhood.

Lord Jesus, your life is continuous, lasting, worship; everything in you is adoration: – teach us to awaken in ourselves a sense of total gift and gratuitousness; may we acknowledge that everything comes from you.

Lord Jesus, you make us responsible for watching over, safeguarding, the faith: – teach us, together with the people and with our confreres who live in Europe, to safeguard in our hearts the challenge of faith and the rich treasury of what we hope in. We come before you, O Lord, seeking the Spirit’s coming, like Mary and the Apostles at Pentecost: – Teach us to seek the gift of the Spirit and build up the Church!

Prayer to Our Lady of the Sacred Heart

Remember, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart, what ineffable power thy Divine Son hath given thee over His Own adorable Heart. Full of trust in thy merits, we come before thee and beg thy protection. O heavenly Treasurer of the Heart of Jesus, that Heart which is the inexhaustible source of all graces, which thou may open to us at thy good pleasure, in order that from it may flow forth upon mankind the riches of love and mercy, light and salvation, that are contained therein; grant unto us, we beseech thee, the favors which we seek . . . We can never, never be refused by thee, and since though art our Mother, O our Lady of the Sacred Heart, graciously hear our prayers and grant our request. Amen.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit
